Jump To Lance Armstrong's Stats
It's hard to imagine the pain that Lance Armstrong went through to accomplish all he has done. With every pedal stoke he has taken toward his seven consecutive Tour de France victories, Armstrong has built a lasting legacy that appears to be infallible. With all his diverse interests, his net worth now hovers at $179,101,375.
Armstrong has taken on the tallest peaks in the Alps, the excruciating pain of testicular cancer and gone on to humble the most elite athletes in the world. The American cycling phenomena continues to express his maxims through his Livestrong Foundation as he pushes all round to be aware of their health and to continue to monitor personal progress.
The singular accomplishment of winning one Tour de France would satisfy most human beings. To have two or even three yellow jerseys adorn your body puts must in the penultimate realm, but Armstrong always wanted more. Even after retiring with the seventh consecutive victory, Armstrong has returned to the tour in his late 30s attempting to fly by the peloton one more time. He knows no quit.
Armstrong now has strong sponsor and endorsements with a host of large companies. He has partnered with a sports drink company and with Nike. He sponsors a bike company, a health food company and outdoor athletic gear. His name brings attention, the desired effect of recognition and his continued effect in competition sports. I wouldn't be too surprised to see him taking these triathlons more and more serious.
His brand, Livestrong, make for a perfect match with Nike. According to sales records, the bright yellow band that connotes cancer research has sold over 70 million times.
