Tyler Hamilton of the U.S. takes the start in the men's 48-kilometre individual time trial event at Vouliagmeni near Athens, as part of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games in this August 18, 2004 file photo. American cyclist Tyler Hamilton will officially be stripped of his Athens 2004 Olympic gold medal on Friday as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) moves to close the case before the end of an eight-year statute of limitation, an IOC source told Reuters on August 9, 2012.
