Former Ironman St. George Champion Suspended for Doping


Former Ironman St. George champion Michael Weiss has been banned from the sport for  two years on a doping infringement.

Weiss, who claimed gold in the St. George Ironman in 2010, denied the accusations upon arriving in St. George for the 2011 race.

Austria’s anti-doping agency claimed it had found proof Weiss had been doping by taking his blood for enrichment in 2005.

Weiss can appeal the ban at the Court of Arbitration in Switzerland.
