Now that Lance Armstrong has confessed to Oprah Winfrey about the use of performance-enhancing drugs that helped him win his seven Tour de France titles, speculation is arising that the ban placed on Armstrong to participate in the sport will be lifted.

Armstrong, who is set to testify against those who were involved in the sophisticated scheme, reportedly came clean about the doping allegations in an effort to take the first step to wiping the smudge off his record.

But what will the revered star and cancer survivor have to do to get the ban lifted? Can it be lifted?

According to the World Anti-Doping Association, it certainly can.

WADA says “only when Mr. Armstrong makes a full confession under oath — and tells the anti-doping authorities all he knows about doping activities — can any legal and proper process for him to seek any reopening or reconsideration of his lifetime ban commence.”

Oh. That was easy. How long that may take after he confesses under full oath is unclear, but it seems like when they do get that statement from Armstrong, they’ll be willing to work with him to get back into sports.

What do you guys think about that? Did they let him off too easy?
