IOC wants Armstrong’s bronze medal

The IOC wants Lance Armstrong to hand back his Olympic
medal.

IOC vice president Thomas Bach says Armstrong and the U.S.
Olympic Committee had been asked to return the bronze medal that
the American won at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and
banned for life from elite sports. The IOC also stripped him of his
bronze medal.

Bach says there was no legal dispute involved.

Bach says “what we are lacking — sadly but I hope we can still
come to the result — is just getting back the medal. But legally
the case for the IOC is closed.”
