Lance Armstrong has yet to return his Olympic bronze medal from the 2000 Games in Sydney, nine months after the International Olympic Committee asked for it back. The head of the organization’s judicial commission, Thomas Bach, stepped forward Monday to publicly remind the disgraced cyclist that they were still waiting on him.

In January, the IOC stripped Armstrong of his bronze. While he accepted the punishment, he has yet to honor his promise to return the medal. The IOC is now working with the United States Olympic Committee in an attempt to recover it.

“We declared his result null and void and decided not to bump up anyone into the bronze medal position,” Bach told the Associated Press. Spaniard Abraham Olano, who has also been connected with doping, finished fourth.
