Lance Armstrong as Teacher

Finn Janning

Abstract


The American cyclist Lance Armstrong, I propose, overcame a threatening death sentence through his strength of will, not necessarily his strength of character the latter idealized by Aristotle (2004) in his Ethics. It was Armstrong’s will to survive that made him one of the most celebrated and loved athletes in recent times. He won the Tour de France seven times. He became the achiever per se in today’s achievement society that was already emerging in 90’s.
