A five-time World Champion, Core Power athlete Craig Alexander was named one of Inside Triathlon Magazine’s 10 Greatest Male Iron-Distance Triathletes of All Time and one of Inside Triathlon Magazine’s 15 Greatest Male Triathletes of All Time. In 2011, he won both the Ironman 70.3 and Ironman World Championship in the same year, something that no other professional triathlete has ever accomplished.
Crowie’s victory at Kona Ironman in 2011 at the age of 38 made him the oldest male in history to ever win the event. To top it all off, he set the course record. Not too shabby for an old dude.
Loved and respected by the athletic community, his training partners and even his most intense rivals, Crowie’s easy demeanor and approachable nature add warmth and sophistication to his fiercely intense drive and determination.
The first family of triathlon (Crowie, his wife Neri, daughter Lucy and son Austin) split their time between their home base in New South Wales, Australia and their home away from home in Boulder, Colorado.
When Crowie took his third Kona Ironman victory in October of last year, he’d been drinking Core Power (then Athletes HoneyMilk) for more than a year. He continues to drink Core Power as part of his 2012 Ironman training, so the way we do math, we think he’ll win again this year and probably about 8 more times. Maybe 10.
Throughout 2012, CorePower.com will bring you Crowie’s training and competitions as he makes his way back to Kona. Craig’s exclusive training updates, triathlon tips and interviews will inspire the inner triathlete in all of us.
