MONTREAL (AP) — The World Anti-Doping Agency says it won't appeal the decision to strip Lance Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles and ban him for life.
Last week, the International Cycling Union also accepted the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's sanctions, wiping Armstrong's name from the Tour winner's list and asking him to return millions of dollars in prize money.
WADA President John Fahey says "this case has resulted in a right and proper sanction for the athlete ... and has served as a revelation to the world of sport. For this USADA must be applauded."
WADA, which had 21 days to decide whether to appeal, also said it was waiting for the UCI to deliver "the details of the independent inquiry that is proposed."
