NADA, Austria’s National Doping Agency, has announced that it is investigating Austrian triathlete Michael Weiss for doping.

You may recall from THIS story that Weiss won the the inaugural Ironman race in St. George, Utah this year.

Weiss is being investigated along with three other Austrian cyclist, Josef Kugler, Michael Knopf and Hannes Gruendlinger, for allegedly doping over the last five years.

If Weiss is found guilty of doping it remains unclear if American Ben Hoffman, the second place finisher of the Ironman race in St. George this year, would be awarded the win.

Weiss also has two podium finishes at the Xterra World Championships.
