Armstrong getting little sympathy from IOC

LONDON - The vice president of the International Olympic Committee is weighing in on Lance Armstrong's televised interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Thomas Bach says Armstrong's doping confession is "too little, too late" and fails to provide any new information that will help clean up the sport he tarnished through years of cheating.

A day after stripping Armstrong of his bronze medal from the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the IOC urged the disgraced former Tour de France champion to supply details to anti-doping authorities in order to "bring an end to this dark episode."

Armstrong admitted that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win seven Tour de France titles, all of which have been stripped by cycling's governing body.
