Armstrong's name dropped from his cancer foundation

Austin, Texas: Lance Armstrong's cancer-fighting charity has formally dropped him from its name and will officially be known as the Livestrong Foundation.

The move is the latest of several by the charity to separate itself from its founder, who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after the US Anti-Doping Agency revealed evidence of performance-enhancing drug use by Armstrong and his teammates.

Foundation spokeswoman Katherine McLane said Wednesday the name change was approved by the Texas Secretary of State on Oct. 30.

Armstrong had previously stepped down as chairman of the foundation and resigned from its board of directors.

He has not commented publicly on the USADA report.
