Armstrong Takes Time Out for Family of NYC Policeman
Texan Lance Armstrong took time out from his quest for a fourth straight Tour de France title to meet with the family of a New York City policeman. Officer Paul Talty was killed in the September terrorist attacks in New York.
The Austin cyclist on Wednesday spent about 20 minutes with the Talty family in a private meeting. A French police officers' school helped organize the trip by Talty's wife, Barbara, and three children for the visit with Armstrong at a hotel in Reims, France. Barbara Talty told Le Parisien it was really kind of Armstrong to take time to show his support for the families.
