Shields and Weiss added to US roster

13th November 2013

Tom Shields and Michael Weiss have been added to the U.S. roster for next month’s Duel in the Pool in Glasgow after Ryan Lochte was forced to withdraw due to injury.

Five-time Olympic champion Lochte will sit out the meet after sustaining a knee injury.

Shields is short course American record holder over 100m and 200m Butterfly. He is also a double World Short Course medallist, having won 100m Fly silver and 50m Fly bronze at the 2012 Championships in Istanbul.

Weiss has enjoyed his greatest success over 400m Individual Medley, including landing the World University Games title in Kazan earlier this year.
