Craig Alexander: A true triathlon gem

When people say they've never heard a bad word said about a particular athlete, you know you're in for a treat when the opportunity to interview them comes along.

That particular athlete is Craig "Crowie" Alexander.

The Australian grew up dreaming of a career as a soccer player. Thankfully for the triathlon world, the soccer dream went out of the window, to be replaced by a dream to be the world's best triathlete. He's gone on to win the Ironman World Championship 3 times and the Ironman 70.3 World Championship twice.

You'll hear

  • An incredible honesty about him lacking intrinsic confidence throughout his career
  • Him ooze passion for the sport, the process, the training, the lifestyle
  • The Hollywood story of how he got together with his wife Neri
  • Why he hated having to give his winner's speech after Chrissie Wellington
  • The secret to still racing at the top in his mid 40s
