Lance Armstrong won't face sanctions

No sanctions against Armstrong: France's anti-doping agency said Friday it will not seek sanctions against Lance Armstrong over a dispute with a drug tester.

At issue was a 20-minute delay when Armstrong said a drug tester who showed up March 17 to collect blood, urine and hair samples agreed to let him shower while the American rider's assistants checked the tester's credentials.

"Just got the word from the French agency AFLD on the shower gate incident," the seven-time Tour de France winner wrote on Twitter. "Case closed, no penalty, all samples clean. Onward."
