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.

„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
Context: 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. p. 157

„Everybody wants to know what I'm on. What am I on? I'm on my bike busting my ass six hours a day. What are you on?“

—  Lance Armstrong
Context: This is my body, and I can do whatever I want to it. I can push it. Study it. Tweak it. Listen to it. Everybody wants to know what I'm on. What am I on? I'm on my bike busting my ass six hours a day. What are you on? As quoted in "Lance Armstrong Ruined My Gym" by Neal Pollack, in Slate (1 July 2005) http://www.slate.com/id/2121809/

„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
Context: 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. Press conference (8 October 1996)

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

—  Lance Armstrong
Context: 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. 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

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

—  Lance Armstrong
Context: 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. 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

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

—  Lance Armstrong
Context: 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. As quoted in Forbes Magazine (3 December 2001)

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

—  Lance Armstrong
Context: 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. p. 21

„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.“

—  Lance Armstrong
Context: 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." p. 113
