IOC move against Lance

The International Olympic Committee will launch an investigation into Lance Armstrong's 2000 Olympics bronze medal after the American was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.

"The IOC will now immediately start the process concerning the involvement of Lance Armstrong, other riders and particularly their entourages with respect to the Olympic Games and their future involvement with the Games," an IOC official told Reuters on Thursday.

Armstrong, who won a time trail medal at the Sydney Games, was stripped of his 1999-2005 Tour victories.
