ST AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- They call it the "fall from grace."
The moment when a big-time athlete get his or her name in the headlines for not so good reasons. Take one of the latest: Lance Armstrong.
"It's kind of actually upsetting, you know, because he visits such a big person and provided so many charities with money, you know?" Anna Aiello said.
On Monday, Armstrong was officially stripped of all titles dating back to August 1998.
A recent report by U.S. anti-doping authorities claims Armstrong was at the center of a "massive team doping scheme, more extensive than any other previously revealed in professional sports history."
"We've come too far in the fight against doping to turn back to our past," a cycling official said.
Armstrong isn't the only one who's gone from the top to the bottom. From Barry Bonds to Marion Jones to Tiger Woods....they've all had their day.
Sports fans we spoke with say it's definitely disappointing.
"Everyone makes mistakes, but I guess when you have that prestige, you're upheld, you're a role model...it's more critical," Charles Adams said.
The Livestrong campaign brought in millions of dollars and inspired just as many. Now that it seems Armstrong's name is tainted, some wonder if things will ever be the same.
For now, some fans say they'll stay optimistic.
"I just don't think they have the right to strip him of all those titles," Aiello said.
The International Cycling Union has a meeting on Friday to decide whether they'll take back prize money from Armstrong and decide whether to give his Tour de France titles to other cyclists.
