Craig Alexander, known by his fans as “Crowie,” has been named one of the greatest male triathletes of all time by Inside Triathlon magazine.
He has found success at every level of the sport and ascended through the triathlon ranks to claim five Ironman® and Ironman 70.3® world championships in the past five years. Craig’s dedication to triathlon is surpassed only by his devotion to family—his wife, Nerida, and two young children, Lucy and Austin. Triathlon’s first family hails from Sydney, Australia, but spends the race season in Boulder, Colorado.
