Lance Edward Armstrong, born Lance Edward Gunderson is an American professional road racing cyclist with a net worth estimate of $125 million. But he goes far beyond that, he is an icon of the sport and is an inspiration to cancer patients everywhere. He was born on September 18th 1971, in Plano, Texas. He was raised by his mother, Linda Moonyham. His father Eddie Charles Gunderson left him and his mother when Lance was two. Lance found his peace in sports. He began swimming and running at the tender age of ten. By thirteen he was already competing in cycling and triathlons. Three years later Armstrong would become a professional tri-athlete. In both 1989 and 1990 he would become the national sprint-course triathlon champion. Eventually, Armstrong would focus more on cycling. In his senior year of high school he was invited to Colorado Springs, Colorado to train with U.S. Olympic development team. 1989 proved to be a good year for him when he placed 11th in the World Champion road race (with the best American time since 1976), was named the U.S. national amateur champion, and beat out many professional cyclists in two high profile races. He competed in the 1992 Olympics and though he came in at 14th place he was still invited to join the Motorola cycling team. He would finally get a yearly salary from them. At the age of twenty-one Lance came in first at the World Road Race Championship in Oslo, Norway. Armstrong was not only one of two Americans to win it but was also the youngest. Armstrong's victories continued along the way, in 1996 he even switched teams to become a part of Frances' "Team Confidis". 1996 also brought horrible news. Lance Armstrong had been diagnosed with testicular cancer. The tumor spread to his abdomen, lungs, and lymph nodes. He had his testicular removed, changed his eating habits, and began extensive chemotherapy to give him a 65-85% chance of survival. But doctors soon found on his brain which dropped his chances down to 40 percent. Thankfully through the help of surgery to remove the tumor and another round of chemotherapy, Lance was declared cancer free in February 1997. During his cancer treatment one of the few things that kept Lance going was the thought that he would someday race again. Very few people felt this way including Confidis, who canceled his contract with them. He became a free agent yet he wasn't as accessible as he once was. He finally signed on with the United States Post Office Team. Armstrong returned to cycling in 1998 and did very well for himself. In 1999 he won the Tour De Force France and became the 2nd American to ever take the gold. He would win again the following year. He would go on to place very well for himself in numerous races. In 2005 he announced his retirement but could not stay away because in 2009 he once again raced in the Tour De Force France he came in at 3rd place. He plans to race again in 2010. He lives in Austin Texas, with his girlfriend Anna Hasen and son Maxwell Edward Armstrong. He spends a lot of time raising money for his two charities Live Strong (which is a cancer foundation) and the Lance Armstrong Junior Race Series which encourages kids to partake in racing and cycling.
Lance Edward Armstrong (born Lance Edward Gunderson on September 18, 1971) is an American former professional road racing cyclist who won the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times after having survived testicular cancer. He is also the founder and chairman of the Lance Armstrong Foundation for cancer research and support. He last rode for UCI ProTeam Team RadioShack, a team he helped found.
In October 1996 he was diagnosed as having testicular cancer with a tumor that had metastasized to his brain and lungs. His cancer treatments included brain and testicular surgery and extensive chemotherapy, and his prognosis was originally poor. He went on to win the Tour de France each year from 1999 to 2005, and is the only person to win seven times having broken the previous record of five wins shared by Miguel Indurain, Bernard Hinault, Eddy Merckx, and Jacques Anquetil.
In 1999, he was named the ABC Wide World of Sports Athlete of the Year. In 2000 he won the Prince of Asturias Award in Sports. In 2002, Sports Illustrated magazine named him Sportsman of the Year. He was also named Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year for the years 2002-2005. He received ESPN's ESPY Award for Best Male Athlete in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006, and won the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Overseas Personality Award in 2003. Armstrong announced his retirement from racing on July 24, 2005, at the end of the 2005 Tour de France but returned to competitive cycling in January 2009 and finished third in the 2009 Tour de France. He confirmed he had retired from competitive cycling for good on February 16, 2011.
Armstrong was born on September 18, 1971, at Methodist Hospital in Oak Cliff, Texas in the southern sector of Dallas. At the age of 12, he began his sporting career as a swimmer at the City of Plano Swim Club and finished fourth in Texas state 1,500-meter freestyle. He abandoned swimming-only competition after seeing a poster for a junior triathlon called the Iron Kids
