KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Fourteen years of Lance Armstrong's career was erased in a one day, including his seven Tour de France titles -- which makes some question the Livestrong legacy in the Kansas City metro.
The U.S Anti-Doping Agency accused Armstrong of using performance-enhancing drugs to achieve his cycling legacy. Armstrong has denied the allegations, but says he's tired of fighting.
Local Armstrong fans are disappointed by the accusations and surprised that he has chosen to not fight back, but the legacy of his Livestrong Foundation will live on in Kansas City.
There are no plans to change the name of Sporting Kansas City's Livestrong Soccer Park in Kansas City, Kan. The club partnered with Armstrong's Livestrong Foundation in 2011.
Sporting Club CEO Robb Heineman released a statement on Friday, which read, in part:
"The naming rights partnership between our stadium and Livestrong provides an opportunity to spread health and wellness messages that emphasizes the spirit of cancer survivorship.
Livestrong's focus is the fight against cancer and the support of 28 million people around the world affected by this disease, and we believe strongly in this mission."
That's a position shared by many local Armstrong supporters, including soccer fan Nick Garcia.
"Its a fine line. Yes it is one in the same, but for me personally I hope people see the silver lining in the cloud and saw Lance is a pretty good guy," Garcia said. "A great guy for the things that he does to help those who are inflicted by cancer."
Armstrong maintains his innocence.
