Lance Armstrong became the world’s greatest cyclist when he was 25; he did that by winning the Tour De France three times in a row. Then doctors told him he had prostate cancer; this cancer appears in men at the ages of 15 – 35. Lance had ignored the signs of the cancer and it had spread to his brain, abdomen, and lungs. His chances of living were dimming. Lance took powerful treatment to cure the cancer. During his treatment he founded the Livestrong foundations which now sell wristbands for people with cancer. After he was cured and survived, he got back on his bike and won the Tour De France 3 times in a row.
Lance Armstrong is one of the most persevering athletes in the world. Lance's key to persevering was saying to himself, “Go like you have never gone before.” Cycling is a team sport; every team has a leader. The leader is the best cyclist of the team. The rest of the team will block other riders and break wind for the leader so it is easier.
