The International Olympic Committee announced on Thursday that it is looking into the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's case against Lance Armstrong to see if it should strip Armstrong of his Olympic medal.
Armstrong won the bronze medal in the time trial at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
IOC spokeswoman Emmanuelle Moreau told the Associated Press that it is “premature” to say whether the IOC is considering measures but “should we come across any evidence that would justify opening a disciplinary procedure, we would of course act accordingly.”
USADA issued a 200-page report Wednesday explaining its reasons for stripping Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles. The report accused Armstrong of being at the center of a sophisticated doping scheme.
The total evidence against Armstrong, USADA Chief Executive Travis Tygart said Wednesday, is in excess of 1,000 pages and features sworn testimony from 26 individuals, “including 15 riders with knowledge of the USPS team and its participants’ doping activities.”
