Part Two of Armstrong Interview Airs

Part two of the highly anticipated interview between Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong aired Friday, and this time, it was all about the fallout. Armstrong said he didn’t expect Livestrong to ask him to consider stepping down. “It was the best thing for the organization, but it hurt like hell,” Armstrong said. The cyclist also said the day he lost his sponsors was a “$75 million dollar day.” Asked by Oprah if he would compete again, Armstrong answered, “Hell yes. Do I think it’s going to happen? No.” Armstrong suggested his punishment was more severe than other players’ more temporary suspensions saying “I’m not sure that I deserve the death penalty.” Armstrong became emotional for the first time while recalling the day he told his children the truth, and said that his mom is “a wreck.”
