Life in the Lance Lane

I’m not sure how I would behave if I lined up at a masters swimming event and in the lane next to me is Lance Armstrong.

In the article, amateur athletes are quoted as saying that wouldn’t mind racing against him, that masters is for “fun and fitness”, but what happens when Lance blitzes the field and wins?

And the opening sentence says it all: Lance Armstrong “planned to return to athletic competition this week at a masters swimming event that does not test its athletes for drugs.”

Maybe they should start testing, just to see how many of the masters athletes are actually in it for “fun and fitness”.
