Armstrong 'gratified' by no charges in doping case

Updated: February 03, 2012, 19:30

Cyclist Lance Armstrong released the following statement through his attorney after the U.S. attorney's office decided Friday not to bring charges against him after a nearly two-year investigation into whether the seven-time Tour de France champion and his teammates ran a doping program:

"I am gratified to learn that the U.S. Attorney's Office is closing its investigation. It is the right decision and I commend them for reaching it. I look forward to continuing my life as a father, a competitor, and an advocate in the fight against cancer without this distraction.''
