WADA urges Feds to hand over Armstrong info

Updated: February 07, 2012, 07:47

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) The World Anti-Doping Agency urged U.S. federal authorities to quickly hand over evidence collected in their lengthy probe into seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong and doping in American cycling.

WADA President John Fahey said federal agencies in the United States gathered "significant evidence'' in the criminal investigation that was abruptly closed last week with no charges filed.

Fahey said Tuesday it would be "very, very helpful if that information was handed over'' to the U.S Anti-Doping Agency, which said it will continue its own probe into doping in cycling.

Federal prosecutors dropped their investigation of Armstrong last Friday, ending a nearly two-year effort aimed at determining whether the world's most famous cyclist and his teammates joined in a doping program during his greatest years.
