Craig Alexander      

Ironman Triathlon Course Record Holder & 3-Time World Champion; Physiotherapist & Media Contributor

Craig Alexander is an Australian triathlete, physiotherapist, media contributor, and a professional speaker. He is the 2008, 2009 & 2011 Ironman Triathlon World Champion & course record holder for the Ironman World Championship.

In 2006, Crowie won the inaugural 70.3 Ironman World Championship. Then, in 2008, he claimed the Hawaiian Ironman World Championship for the first time, confirming his triathlon status as “Alexander the Great”.

In 2011, at 38 years of age, Crowie achieved what no other man in the history of Triathlon was able to: he won both the Half Ironman and Ironman World Championships in the same year. By winning his third Hawaiian Ironman World Championship he also claimed a new world record time and a new “King of Kona” was crowned.

Craig was humbled when Ironman legend and six-time World Champion Dave Scott lauded him as “The first true men’s champion the sport has seen in years.”

In the inaugural Melbourne Ironman in 2012 (which some have described as the “race of the decade”), Crowie achieved a sub 8 hour winning time. Crowie managed to complete the 2.4mile/3.86km swim course in 50:33, the 112mile/180km bike ride in 4:24:42 and the 26.2/42.2km run course in 2:38:45. That’s the equivalent of less than 40sec per lap in an Olympic pool for over 77 consecutive laps, an average of almost 41km per hour km on the bike for close to 4 and a half hours and an average run speed of 6min per mile or sub 3min50 per km for the entire marathon.

Before Craig was dubbed “Crowie”, “Alexander the Great”, crowned “King of Kona” or even toed the start line of a single race, he was always had a winning mentality. Crowie has worked hard over the years to combine a relentless pursuit for improvement with an internal drive to achieve the outstanding every day.
