Armstrong was near tears at that point, referring to 13 year old Luke, the oldest of his five children. He blinked, looked away from Winfrey and, with his lip trembling, struggled to compose himself.
Winfrey asks the question three more times, in different forms.
"Were you trying to pay off USADA?" she asked.
of the hourlong program on Winfrey's OWN network. In the first part, broadcast Thursday, the disgraced cycling champion admitted using performance enhancing drugs when he won seven straight Tour de France titles.
"I said, 'Listen, there's been a lot of questions about your dad. My career. Whether I doped or did not dope. I've always denied that and I've always been ruthless and defiant about that. You guys have seen that. That's probably why you trusted me on it.' Which makes it even sicker," Armstrong said.
After retiring from cycling in 2011, Armstrong returned to triathlons, where he began his professional career as a teenager, and he has told people he's desperate to get back.
It wasn't over the $75 million in sponsorship deals that evaporated over the course of two days, or having to walk away from the Livestrong cancer charity he founded and called his "sixth child." It wasn't even about his lifetime ban from competition, though he said that was more than he deserved.
It was another bit of collateral damage that Armstrong said he wasn't prepared to deal with.
And that wasn't the only portion of the interview likely to rile anti doping officials.
"And, uh, I told Luke, I said," and here Armstrong paused for a long time to collect himself, Adidas Running Shoes Energy Boost Price "I said, 'Don't defend me anymore. Don't.'

"Yes. And I said, 'You've got a deal,'" he replied. Postal Service cycling team included witness statements from at least three former teammates who said Kristin Armstrong participated in or at least knew about doping on the teams and knew team code names for EPO kept in her refrigerator. Postal rider Jonathan Vaughters testified that she handed riders cortisone pills wrapped in foil.
Not while expressing deep remorse or regrets, though there was plenty of that in Friday night's second part of Armstrong's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Armstrong said in the first part of the interview that he had stayed clean in the comeback, a claim that runs counter to the USADA report.
Critics said he hadn't been contrite enough in the first half of the interview, which was taped Monday in Austin, but Armstrong seemed to lose his composure when Winfrey zeroed in on the emotional drama involving his personal life.
Armstrong has talked with USADA officials, and a meeting with Tygart near the Denver airport reportedly ended in an argument over the possibility of modifying the lifetime ban. A person familiar with those conversations said Armstrong could provide information that might get his ban reduced to eight years. By then, he would be 49. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he was discussing a confidential matter.

"The line of drugs?" Winfrey asked.
CHICAGO (AP) Lance Armstrong finally cracked.
"She said to me, 'You can do it under one condition: That you never cross that line again,'" Armstrong recalled.
"What did you say?" Winfrey asked.

"No, that's not true," he replied, repeating, "That is not true."

Winfrey also drew Armstrong out on his ex wife, Kristin, whom he claimed knew just enough about both the doping and lying to ask him to stop. He credited her with making him promise that his comeback in 2009 would be drug free.
"That's when I knew I had to tell him."
"That is not true," he insisted.
