In this paragraph i'm going to talk about how Lance Armstrong impacted the American Society socially. In 2010 the United States Anti-doping Agency (USADA) started an investigation against Lance, which he constantly denied. After many months of investigation, Armstrong announced on August 23, 2012 that he would end his fight against these charges. But yet he still insisted that he was innocent of all doping violations. Immediately after the USADA announced that they would strip armstrong of his seven tour de france and the bronze medal he won at the 2000 Summer Olympic Games and was banned from cycling for life.
At the National Interscholastic meet in Chicago, during his senior year, he set a new high school world record by running the 100 yard dash in 9.4 seconds to tie the accepted world record, and he created a new high school world record in the 220 yard dash by running the distance in 20.7 seconds. A week earlier he had set a new world record in the broad jump by jumping 24 feet 11 3/4 inches. Owens' sensational high school track career resulted in him being recruited by dozens of colleges. Owens chose the Ohio State University, even though OSU could not offer a track scholarship at the time. He worked a number of jobs to support himself and his young wife, Ruth.
Although Armstrong persistently denied allegations of doping, even stating he was the most tested athlete in the world and suing accusers of libel, he finally admitted to doping in a television interview conducted by Oprah Winfrey in 2012. Armstrong was a child athlete, an Iron Kids Triathlon winner at the young age of 13 as well as national triathlon champion in 1989 and 1990. Winning the Tour de France seven consecutive times was no easy feat, he was a champion, a legend. Sponsors such as Nike, RadioShack, Anheuser-Busch and Oakley believed in him and made him wealthy. He faced many critics throughout his victory years, and continuously denied every allegation of cheating by doping.
Owens became the hero of America during those hostile times, and proved that no matter the race, superiority was in the minds of many. Jesse Owens played a big role in abandoning the racial boundaries in American history and especially doing so in Hitler’s own homeland. His impact can be seen through his early athletic years, his achievement in the 1936 Olympics, and his life after being an Olympian hero. As a young athlete in high school and college Jesse Owens created a name for himself setting multiple records. He went to East Technical High School in Danville, Alabama where he set himself up for success to become one of the top track and field stars at the school.
RACE COMMENTATOR: Might and Power well clear at the 200 metre mark, he's gone out by four lengths. It looks all over. Might and Power has gapped them in the Caulfield Cup. What a win, he's won it by seven lengths. Doremus is second... NICK MORAITIS: It's a funny thing you know, when he went through the ring nobody wanted him because of this leg that he had.

 Both U.S. athletes intended on bringing black gloves to the event, but Carlos forgot his, leaving them in the Olympic Village. It was the Australian, Peter Norman, who suggested Carlos wear Smith's left-handed glove. For this reason, Carlos raised his left hand as opposed to his right, differing from the traditional Black Power salute.  When "The Star-Spangled Banner" played, Smith and Carlos delivered the salute with heads bowed, a gesture which became front page news around the world. As they left the podium they were booed by the crowd.

Education and Work Experience Nicholas excelled in high school, graduating valedictorian of his class and earning notice as a middle-distance runner. He accepted a full athletic scholarship to the University of Notre Dame and set a school record as part of a relay team, but he found himself hampered by an Achilles tendon injury the summer after his freshman year. With time on his hands and little to do but recover, Nicholas wrote his first novel, The Passing, which was never published. According to Nicholas, it will never be, but the experience began to hone his writing skills. Nicholas graduated from Notre Dame in 1988 with a degree in finance and married his wife, Cathy, in 1989, a year that would also bring a deep sadness to Nicholas' life — his mother passed away at the age of 47 from a horseback riding accident.
