Oprah says Lance can be hero again



EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Oprah Winfrey says Lance Armstrong has the opportunity to be a hero again.

She says the hardest thing Armstrong has done in his life is confess in an interview with her last week that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win his seven Tour de France titles.

Winfrey says we are a society that wants to forgive and, if Armstrong does the work to become a good human being, he can rise again.

The media mogul and former talk show host spoke briefly about the disgraced cyclist during a lecture in Edmonton, her first stop on a tour through Western Canada.
