Armstrong talks to US ADA

Lance Armstrong talked last week with the head of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency in hopes of potentially reducing his lifetime ban from the sports he loves, according to The Associated Press.

Armstrong and Travis Tygart met for six hours, according to a person with knowledge of the meeting who spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussion was meant to remain private. The meeting was first reported by The New York Times.

The meeting was the first between Armstrong and Tygart since late 2012. The two have publicly sparred since the agency's investigation into doping by Armstrong and his U.S. Postal Service team.
