Is no superstar athlete sacred?
Apparently not. Lance Armstrong is the latest in record holding athletes to be accused of using and abusing performance enhancing steroids during his tenure on the bike -- Though this definitely isn't the first time he's faced such allegations.
Former teammate Tyler Hamilton will appear on "60 Minutes" this Sunday (May 22), claiming to have witnessed the seven-time Tour De France champion use the performance enhancer Epo in preparation for the 1999, 2000 and 2001 races.
