Pound says sport may face eight-year ban from Games because of Armstrong case

Cycling could be dumped from the Olympic program if Lance Armstrong implicated the sport's governing body of covering up a widespread doping scheme, International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Dick Pound told Reuters on Tuesday.

Pound said the IOC might be left with no choice other than to take drastic action if Armstrong is able to prove the International Cycling Union (UCI) acted improperly.
