Austin, Texas: Livestrong, the cancer charity founded by Lance Armstrong, is entering a new era now that the cyclist has stepped down as chairman in the face of a damning doping report.
"Lance's direction was 'Stay focused on your work. Do not be distracted.' And that's exactly what we've done," Katherine McLane, vice president of communications for Livestrong, told AFP on Thursday.
"Has it been tough? Absolutely. But have we kept ourselves focused, kept ourselves devoted to serving people? Absolutely."
