Biography

Bradley Weiss

For someone who didn’t take up the sport until the age of 19, Bradley Weiss has achieved plenty since becoming World U23 Cross Triathlon champion in 2012.

‘Braddles’ only competed in his first triathlon when his father entered him and his brothers into a local sprint, which he won. The rest, as they say, is history.

Weiss is a back-to-back European XTERRA off-road champion after victories in 2017 and 2018 and went a step further when becoming World Champion in the same discipline in 2017 and then repeating the trick in 2019 in Hawaii.

Bradley also won IRONMAN 70.3 in South Africa in 2019, setting a new course record. He trains alongside Flora Duffy, Sebastian Kienle and Sam Osborne and is coached by former triathlete Dan Hugo.

While Bradley’s favourite event is the XTERRA World Championships, he does admit it was also the scene of his most painful experience, as he led the 2017 race with the desperation to win his first world title pushing him to his physical limits.

His favourite of the three disciplines is the run, but he is constantly driven by progress across all three.

Growing up it wasn’t triathletes he worshipped, but instead rugby stars. Now though, he looks up to normal people and remains humble when thinking about the everyday struggles people go through.

Weiss says: “Whenever I think my life as a professional athlete is getting tough, all it takes is a quick glance through any triathlon transition area to realise I am surrounded by heroes every day and what a blessed life this is to lead.”

Bradley gets pumped for a big race to the strains of Starboy by The Weekend and is a big a fan of rugby, coffee and pizza. But he admits that the fear of a hard swim session is very real.
