Лэнс Армстронг

Дата рождения: 18. Сентябрь 1971
Другие имена: لانس آرمسترانق

Лэнс Э́двард А́рмстронг — американский шоссейный велогонщик; единственный спортсмен, 7 раз финишировавший первым в общем зачёте Тур де Франс .

В 2012 году был пожизненно дисквалифицирован за применение допинга и лишён всех спортивных титулов, полученных с 1998 года.

Начинал профессиональную карьеру как специалист классических велогонок, в 1993 году выиграл чемпионат мира в групповой гонке. В 1996 году у Армстронга был диагностирован рак яичек с метастазами. Вылечившись, в 1998 году вернулся в велоспорт как гонщик команды US Postal. В её составе у Лэнса проявились способности горного гонщика, который может педалировать в подъём с крайне высокой частотой. Он выиграл Тур де Франс 7 раз подряд, и после победы в 2005 году объявил о завершении карьеры. В 2009 году Армстронг вернулся в велоспорт, но не сумел добиться результатов, сопоставимых с прежними. В феврале 2011 года повторно завершил карьеру на фоне расследования в США по поводу возможного использования им допинга. В 2012 году Армстронг был дисквалифицирован за применение допинга; все его результаты с момента возвращения в велоспорт после ракового заболевания были аннулированы, в том числе 7 титулов победителя Тур де Франс и бронзовая медаль Олимпиады в Сиднее.

Основатель благотворительного фонда помощи людям, затронутым раком, — Фонда Лэнса Армстронга .

17 января 2013 года в интервью Опре Уинфри Армстронг признался в использовании допинга во время своей карьеры в велоспорте.

Цитаты Лэнс Армстронг

„A life spent defensively, worried, is a life wasted.“

—  Lance Armstrong, книга Every Second Counts

Источник: Every Second Counts (2003), p. 21
Контексте: A life spent defensively, worried, is a life wasted.
You know when I need to die? When I'm done living. When I can't walk, can't eat, can't see, when I'm a crotchety old bastard, mad at the world. Then I can die.

„Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.“

—  Lance Armstrong, книга Every Second Counts

Источник: Every Second Counts

„I want to die at a hundred years old with an American flag on my back and the star of Texas on my helmet, after screaming down an Alpine descent on a bicycle at 75 miles per hour.“

—  Lance Armstrong, книга It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life

Источник: It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life (2000), p. 1
Контексте: I want to die at a hundred years old with an American flag on my back and the star of Texas on my helmet, after screaming down an Alpine descent on a bicycle at 75 miles per hour. I want to cross one last finish line as my wife and my ten children applaud, and then I want to lie down in a field of those famous French sunflowers and gracefully expire, the perfect contradiction to my once anticipated poignant early demise.

„How do you propel yourself through space on a bicycle, sometimes steeply uphill, at a speed sustainable for three weeks? Every second counts.“

—  Lance Armstrong, книга Every Second Counts

Источник: Every Second Counts (2003), p. 157
Контексте: The Tour (de France) is essentially a math problem, a 2,000-mile race over three weeks that's sometimes won by a margin of a minute or less. How do you propel yourself through space on a bicycle, sometimes steeply uphill, at a speed sustainable for three weeks? Every second counts.

„By fight I mean arm yourself with all the available information, get second opinions, third opinions, and fourth opinions.“

—  Lance Armstrong, книга It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life

Источник: It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life (2000), p. 267
Контексте: Anything is possible. You can be told you have a 90-percent chance or a 50-percent chance or a 1-percent chance, but you have to believe, and you have to fight. By fight I mean arm yourself with all the available information, get second opinions, third opinions, and fourth opinions. Understand what has invaded your body, and what the possible cures are. It's another fact of cancer that the more informed and empowered patient has a better chance of long-term survival. What if I had lost? What if I relapsed and the cancer came back? I still believe I would have gained something in the struggle, because in what time I had left I would have been a more complete, compassionate, and intelligent man, and therefore more alive.

„Without cancer, I never would have won a single Tour de France.“

—  Lance Armstrong

As quoted in Forbes Magazine (3 December 2001)
Контексте: Without cancer, I never would have won a single Tour de France. Cancer taught me a plan for more purposeful living, and that in turn taught me how to train and to win more purposefully. It taught me that pain has a reason, and that sometimes the experience of losing things — whether health or a car or an old sense of self — has its own value in the scheme of life. Pain and loss are great enhancers.

„My job is to suffer. I make the suffering in training hard so that the races are not full of suffering.“

—  Lance Armstrong

As quoted in "10 questions for Lance Armstrong" by Bill Saporito in TIME magazine (28 September 2003) http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1005777,00.html
Контексте: I'm not happy if I'm not doing some physical suffering, like going out on a bike ride or running. First, it's good for you. No. 2, it sort of clears my mind on a daily basis. And it's a job. My job is to suffer. I make the suffering in training hard so that the races are not full of suffering.

„I want this to be a positive experience and I want to take this opportunity to help others who might someday suffer from the same circumstance I face today.“

—  Lance Armstrong

Press conference (8 October 1996)
Контексте: I want to finish by saying that I intend to be an avid spokesperson for testicular cancer once I have beaten the disease... I want this to be a positive experience and I want to take this opportunity to help others who might someday suffer from the same circumstance I face today.

„Finally, the last thing I’ll say to the people who don’t believe in cycling, the cynics and the sceptics: I'm sorry for you. I’m sorry that you can’t dream big. I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles.“

—  Lance Armstrong

Farewell speech at the Champs-Élysées podium, after winning his seventh Tour de France, quoted in "Paris salutes its American hero" by Caroline Wyatt in BBC News (24 July 2005) http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/low/europe/4713283.stm
Контексте: Finally, the last thing I’ll say to the people who don’t believe in cycling, the cynics and the sceptics: I'm sorry for you. I’m sorry that you can’t dream big. I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles. But this is one hell of a race. This is a great sporting event and you should stand around and believe it. You should believe in these athletes, and you should believe in these people. I'll be a fan of the Tour de France for as long as I live. And there are no secrets — this is a hard sporting event and hard work wins it. So Vive le Tour forever!

„No one trains like me. No one rides like me. This jersey's mine.“

—  Lance Armstrong

On the team bus, after winning his fifth Tour de France in 2003, as quoted in "On your marks, get set … go!" in The Guardian by William Fotheringham in The Guardian (30 June 2007) http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2007/jun/30/featuresreviews.guardianreview7
Контексте: No one trains like me. No one rides like me. This jersey's mine. I live for this jersey. It's my life. No one's taking it away from me. This fucking jersey's mine.

„I wished hard, but I didn't pray. I had developed a certain distrust of organized religion growing up, but I felt I had the capacity to be a spiritual person, and to hold some fervent beliefs.“

—  Lance Armstrong, книга It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life

Источник: It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life (2000), p. 113
Контексте: I wished hard, but I didn't pray. I had developed a certain distrust of organized religion growing up, but I felt I had the capacity to be a spiritual person, and to hold some fervent beliefs. Quite simply, I believed I had a responsiblity to be a good person, and that meant fair, honest, hardworking, and honorable. If I did that, if I was good to my family, true to my friends, if I gave back to my community or to some cause, if I wasn't a liar, a cheat, or a thief, then I believed that should be enough. At the end of the day, if there was indeed some Body or presence standing there to judge me, I hoped I would be judged on whether I had lived a true life, not on whether I believed in a certain book, or whether I'd been baptized. If there was indeed a God at the end of my days, I hoped he didn't say, "But you were never a Christian, so you're going the other way from heaven." If so, I was going to reply, "You know what? You're right. Fine."
