PLAYERS: Lance Armstrong

This is one old athlete who has found a way to cheat Father Time but not the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. The latest target on the U.S.A.D.A's list: An 80-year-old weightlifter who was busted for steroids, according to The Associated Press. The agency that brought down Lance Armstrong announced a two-year suspension for Don Ramos of Colorado Springs, Colo., who tested positive for steroids while attempting to set a world record in his age group at the Pan American Masters Weightlifting Championships in June. USADA was contracted to test at the event for athletes 35 and older. The suspension means Ramos can't compete again until July 2015. Organizers of masters events have been cracking down on doping. Two years ago, USADA suspended nine masters athletes for positive tests, including one in his 50s and three in their 60s.
