(WSCR) The International Olympic Committee said Thursday it is looking into the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency’s case against former Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong to see if it should revoke Armstrong’s Olympic medal.

Armstrong earned a bronze medal in the time trial at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

IOC spokeswoman Emmanuelle Moreau said the investigation is “premature”  but also said the Committee will take necessary actions if needed.

“Should we come across any evidence that would justify opening a disciplinary procedure, we would of course act accordingly,” he said.
