Seven deadly sins : my pursuit of Lance Armstrong by David Walsh( Book )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of Lance Armstrong, the cyclist who had recovered from testicular cancer and gone on to win the Tour de France a record seven times, the man who had written a bestselling and inspirational account of his life, the charitable benefactor seemed almost too good to be true. And it was. As early as Armstrong's first victory on the Tour in 1999, Sunday Times journalist David Walsh had reason to doubt that the incredible performances we were seeing from Armstrong were literally too good to be true. Based on insider information and dogged research, he began to unmask the truth. Faced with the allegations against him, Armstrong always denied everything and even resorted to legal action to defend his reputation. But he could not keep everyone silent. In the autumn of 2012, the USADA published a damning report on Armstrong that resulted in the American being stripped of his seven Tour victories and left his reputation in shreds. Walsh's long fight to reveal the truth had been vindicated. This book is the compelling story of Armstrong's tragic fall from grace

Inside Team Sky by David Walsh( Book )

After the victory of Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky in the 2012 Tour de France, the pressure was on the team to repeat their success in 2013. When Wiggins had to pull out of the defence of his yellow jersey, attention moved to Chris Froome, who had finished as runner-up the year before. Could he bring about back-to-back victories for the UK and for Team Sky? With team principal Sir Dave Brailsford at the helm, the levels of expectation were high. Nothing less than a win would do. Embedded within the team was top sportswriter David Walsh, who had been covering the sport for four decades. As the man who had done more than any other journalist to reveal the lies of Lance Armstrong, he has the reputation for exposing the dark secrets that cycling would want to keep hidden. His inside story, from how Team Sky prepared for the Tour de France through to Froome's emphatic victory, is supported by insights from all the key members of the team, and provides a definitive account of a dramatic race that gripped cycling fans around the world

From Russia with drugs by David Walsh( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the story that shocked the world: Russian athletics was revealed to be corrupt from top to bottom, with institutionalised doping used to help the nation's athletes win medals they did not truly deserve. There had always been suspicions, but now WADA had the clearest evidence of what had gone on. As a result, Russia was banned from international athletics until they could show that they were competing clean. With the Rio Olympics imminent, it was a shattering blow to the country's prestige. At the heart of it all, however, was a very personal story of a couple who had risked everything. Vitaliy Stepanov had been part of the Russian anti-doping squad, and during his work he had met and fallen in love with Yuliya, one of the country's most promising 800m athletes. But soon Vitaliy discovered that his bride was not all she seemed: she was taking performance-enhancing drugs. It could have been the end of their relationship, but instead they decided they would reveal the scale and the scope of the corruption in Russian athletics - the bribes, the drugs, the abuse. At enormous personal risk to their marriage and even their lives, they recorded and filmed athletes and officials involved in the scandal, and then escaped to Germany to pass on their devastating evidence. Now, with award-winning journalist David Walsh, the man who broke the Lance Armstrong story, they reveal the full truth of what went on in Russia, and the corrupt system that surrounded everything they did. But it is not only an unrivalled and comprehensive account of the biggest sporting scandal, it is a warm and human story of a couple fighting to tell the truth and to save their family at the same time
L.A. Officiel by Pierre Ballester( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Au regard de son palmarès (7 fois vainqueur du Tour de France, un record), et de son parcours unique du champion qui a terrassé la maladie, Lance Armstrong a quitté le cyclisme en 2005 en pleine gloire. Quelle belle histoire ... qui masque une vérité : le mensonge et la tricherie ont triomphé. Quelle exemplarité. Deux ans après L.A. Confidentiel, Pierre Ballester et David Walsh ont poursuivi l'enquête et enfoncent le clou. Au fait avéré de sa prise d'EPO, s'ajoute une douzaine de nouveaux témoignages confondant le coureur américain. Tous ont été recueillis aux Etats-Unis dans le cadre de procès aux contenus jusqu'alors confidentiels. Jusqu'à L.A. Officiel. Au-delà du leurre que Lance Armstrong a savamment orchestré autour de son image, il faut s'interroger sur les graves répercussions de cette supercherie. Après la consternante révélation d'une filière de dopage sanguin provenant d'Espagne et le pathétique épisode Floyd Landis, le cyclisme de haut niveau conserve-t-il encore le moindre crédit?"--Page [4] de la couv

The program : seven deadly sins : my pursuit of Lance Armstrong by David Walsh( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tie-in edition of the stunning new film, directed by Stephen Frears and starring Chris O'Dowd (Moone Boy, The IT Crowd) as David Walsh and Ben Foster (3.10 to Yuma) as Lance Armstrong. This book, previously published as Seven Deadly Sins, tells the thrilling story of Walsh's thirteen-year quest to prove that the world's most famous cancer survivor and cycling superstar Lance Armstrong had built his reputation on a lie. From Armstrong's first Tour win in 1999, Walsh was one of very few to question what we were seeing and, in his search for the truth, he was dubbed a 'troll' by the Texan cyclist and found himself ostracised by those who didn't want to upset the narrative that Armstrong seemed to present to a sport in urgent need of renewal. Eventually, thanks in large part to Walsh's persistence, Armstrong was stripped of his titles, banned for life from the sport and forced into admitting to Oprah that he had, after all, been doping and that his seven Tour de France victories were little more than his seven deadly sins. It was one of the biggest sporting stories of the century, and the tale of how it came about is now the basis of a wonderful film
