Lance Armstrong thinks doping is ‘OK’ and it does not really matter to him. For those who have seen Armstrong all over these years, you’d doubt his past and present self. For a sportsperson, their performance is everything. They work hard, follow a strict diet and above all the code of conduct.

Maybe it's cheating, but steroids-using athletes and transgender athletes are the original True Biohackers. Gene Doping is however going to make the advantages both have when competing, seem pitifully miniscule. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And no, it's not going to happen in 100 years because not only are there professional athletes experimenting with Gene Therapy for gene doping purposes, but people whose genes were experimentally "doped" as embryos, have already been born. So start biohacking if you want to keep up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While aspiring sportspersons are turning their sweats into medals it is a shame to see sport idols supporting illegal activities. I firmly believe that once you reach a height, everything you do is impactful. Now, this impact can be bad and it can be good too, it depends on the person. Though, what Lance Armstrong did here was not cool for a sportsperson.
Lance Armstrong: The Tour De France
The black booked cyclist had been diagnosed with stage 3 testicular cancer. He was just 25 at that time and had to put up a tough fight with it. After which he was back in the game, his comeback was said to be unbelievable in the history of cycling.
He won Tour De France for seven years straight and was unbeatable. Later it came to the news that Lance Armstrong had been doping in order to strengthen his stamina and for better performance. After, which all his titles were confiscated from him and he was banned from cycling.
The Current Times
At a recent interview in NBC Sports, Lance Armstrong was asked by Mike Tirico the reason behind his decision of doing steroids. He says, that his ‘win at all costs’ situation is to be blamed for it. Yes, however bizarre it might sound from a renowned cyclist it is the truth.

These were the exact words of Lance Armstrong which not just shook Tirico but every person who followed him. He says “We did what we had to do to win,” this itself tells that our twisted cyclist had been engulfed of his greed to win. In fact, he doesn’t even regret doping as he wouldn’t exchange anything in return with it.
