When Lance Armstrong won his seventh straight Tour de France this past summer, he proved beyond a doubt that he is one of the greatest athletes of all time. Lance rode a strategically flawless race to win what is considered the most grueling sporting event around. What makes this champion a legend? His life both on and off the bike continues to inspire millions.
Oprah: Do you acknowledge for yourself that you are one of the greatest...ever?
