On the same day that Lance Armstrong stepped down as chairman of his Livestrong foundation, the former cycling legend was dropped from his large sponsorship from Nike.

Earlier today, Nike decided to finally part ways with Armstrong, after a decade-long relationship, as doping allegations against the American cyclist have reached the ceiling. Citing “insurmountable evidence” the Swoosh wasn’t afraid to make it known that it doesn’t support cheating in any form, particularly doping. Despite the termination of the endorsement, Nike says it will continue to support the Livestrong foundation.

Do you think Nike was too harsh on Armstrong?
