Fascinating story about a pathological LIAR who lied to hundreds of millions of people, without any remorse. Shocking documentary about insidious doping schemes and LIES
Fascinating, shocking and insidious. A detailed story, step by step, how the lies and drug use of Lance Armstrong came to light. What is especially fascinating is the amount of public support Armstrong enjoyed in America. He was a hero for years. A celebrated cancer survivor. A friend of the White House. Everybody loved Lance. So it took years to finally find enough people who dared to end this venomous fairytale based on lies.
Especially the first part of the documentary is fascinating, in which the first witnesses get smeared with all sorts of insinuations, based on lies. Even Greg Lemond, an honest Tour de France winner, gets smeared with lies and accusations, simply because he dared answer a simple question by a journalist if Armstrong could have used drugs. Rightfully so, Greg Lemond answered that IF Armstrong did use drugs he would be the biggest fraud ever. All hell broke loose after that...
75 million dollars worth of sponsor money was drawn back instantly when it was proven that Armstrong had taken drugs. The biggest " winner" always had been the worst liar and cheat after all. He became the biggest looser ever in American sports history. What a fascinating story. Highly recommended, even if you have followed all the news about it when the story first broke, because it has numerous juicy details and witness testimonies that are truly mind boggling...
