2. Lance Armstrong (Cycling)
For many years, Lance Armstrong was titled as a true American hero. He has fought cancer, won against it and still managed to win 7 times in the Tour de France race. But, since he is on the list, sadly these titles were taken away from him the moment he was busted for using steroids.
The United States Anti-Doping Agency dubbed Armstrong the leader of “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen”. There is no doubt, that is a breakdown for a guy who was considered one of the greatest bicycle rider of all times and inspired countless people along the way.
