Lance Armstrong’s son, Luke, likens using PEDs to ‘taking the shortcut’

31

Lance Armstrong’s son, Luke, believes that taking performance-enhancing medication is akin to taking a shortcut in athletic competitors.

Luke Armstrong made the level throughout the second a part of the “Lance” documentary, which centered on his father’s triumphs and tribulations of his biking profession. Luke Armstrong, who performs soccer at Rice, was requested whether or not he would ever think about taking PEDs like his father.

“I’ve always felt like grinding for something, and really working for a specific goal has always been so much more worth it than taking the shortcut,” Luke Armstrong mentioned throughout the documentary, in accordance to the New York Post. “I also feel like if I ever did that and got caught, for random people, they would be like, `He’s just like his dad.’”

Lance Armstrong went so far as to say that he would steer his son away from PEDs.

“If we were put in that position where Luke as a college football player came to me and either said, ‘I’d like to try this,’ or ‘I am doing this,’ I would say, ‘that’s a bad idea,’” Armstrong mentioned. “It might be a different conversation if you’re in the NFL. But at this point in life, in your career, not worth it.”

Lance Armstrong's life was documented in 'Lance.'

Lance Armstrong gained seven Tour de France biking titles earlier than he admitted to using PEDs and had his championships stripped.
