(NEWSER) – Another indignity for Lance Armstrong: He has given back his 2000 Olympic bronze medal. Armstrongtweeted the news himself today along with a photo of the medal, which he picked up at the Sydney Games, reportsAFP. The medal is now in the hands of the US Olympic Committee, which will turn it over to the International Olympic Committee.
