It’s hard out here for a lying, bullying cheat.

Fina, world swimming‘s ruling body, has asked the organisers of a masters event in Texas this weekend to bar Lance Armstrong from making what would be the banned cyclist’s return to competitive sport.

The ruling body said in a statement that athletes convicted of doping offences are not allowed to enter competitions sanctioned by it. “Therefore, Fina wrote a letter to the US Masters Swimming [with copy to US Aquatic Sports and USA Swimming] requesting not to accept the entry of Mr Lance Armstrong in the above mentioned competition,” it said on its website.

Armstrong was supposed to swim in three events in a competition in Austin this weekend. It looks like he’ll have to make other plans. Maybe he can be a pro wrestler.
