Although Michi has not been able to finish a race this year following his crash and fractured collarbone in 70.3 Campeche, he received an unexpected invitation to compete in the Ironman 70.3 World Championships this September.
It was the second place at 70.3 Timberman last August combined with a brilliant win at 70.3 Santa Cruz in September which earned him a coveted slot at the Worlds in Chattanooga, TN.
"I'm humbled and surprised at the same time that I was able to make the cut-off with my 2016 points. Especially in my more challenging situation returning from an injury which has brought a lot of question marks to my race schedule. This spices up the season and boosts my confidence for what's to come!"
Weiss proudly accepted the Chattanooga slot, but whether or not he participates at the 70.3 World Championships will be determined by his pursuits in his full Ironman distance races this summer as he hunts a starting position at the Ironman World Championships in Kona.
