The official citation reads: "Lance Armstrong (b. 1971) is an American cyclist and cancer survivor. After being diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer in 1996, he was able to return to cycling. He still serves as an inspiration to some cancer survivors around the world †."
^Armstrong would go on to fraudulently win (via doping) seven consecutive Tour de France races. He was stripped of the titles by the Union Cycliste International (UCI) on October 22, 2012, after it was determined that he had been using performance-enhancing drugs.
