Lance Armstrong returns medal to International Olympic Committee, stripped of Tour de France titles

Cyclist Lance Armstrong no longer owns his 2000 Olympic bronze medal.

He returned the achievement to Olympic officials yesterday.

Armstrong tweeted that the medal had been returned, and would back in Switzerland as soon as possible.

The IOC said it would not give the medal back to the biker.

Instead, they said they would leave the medal spot vacant for the record books.

In addition, Armstrong has been stripped of his seven Tour de France medals he won from 1999 through 2005.
