There is no denying that Lance Armstrong is an outstanding athlete. In addition to seven consecutive Tour de France wins, Armstrong was also an accomplished swimmer and triathlete. So how did he discover his passion for sports?
“One of the best ways to find your gift, at least looking back on my childhood, was having great people around me – great coaches, great mentors,” Armstrong said. “My mom was very supportive.
