His Story Lacked Veracity…


Cyclist Lance Armstrong became a household name after winning the Tour de France seven consecutive times.

However, his standing as a professional athlete was forever tarnished when it came to light that he had used performance-enhancing drugs.

For years, Armstrong denied those charges, even though many people who knew him questioned the veracity (see definition and hear pronunciation below) of his statements.

Eventually, Armstrong admitted during a television interview that he had been dishonest.

His story is a sad example of the devastating consequences of not telling the truth!

Cool word question of the day: Have you ever questioned the veracity of statements from someone you know?
