The Amazing Racer

Lance Armstrong
Displays His Cup

Lance Armstrong made history Sunday, winning a record-breaking 6th Tour de France, which acknowledges him as one of the greatest athletes of all time.

Armstrong, who just eight years ago was given less than a 50 percent chance of overcoming testicular cancer that spread to his lungs and brain, showed the world, and more importantly, showed the French that he had the strength and determination to overcome incredible odds and to win for an amazing 6th time.

Armstrong was quoted as saying, ""It hasn't sunk in yet. But six, standing on the top step on the podium on the Champs-Elysees is really special," he said."

A Curious Fan Reaches
To Congratulate Armstrong

With the Arc de Triomphe in the background, Armstrong put his yellow bicycle cap over his heart during the raising of the American flag and playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner." It might be his last time on the podium, at least for a while. Armstrong has said he might skip the sport's showcase event next year.

Personally, I think this is one of the great comebacks of all time. Not only in the world of sports, but in the world of...everything. That's right, I said in the world of everything, this story ranks right up there with the best of the best.
Bravo to you, Lance Armstrong! Your cup runneth over!

Lance's response to winning: "I Had A Ball!"

"I had a ball."

That's rude and tasteless! I like that. :)
