Craig Alexander Becomes Ironman Pro Ambassador
Three-time Ironman world champion Craig Alexander has become one of the four only other athletes to become a pro ambassador for Ironman. “It was a huge honor to be asked,” Alexander tells Ironman.com. “It’s also nice to be invited to sit on the athlete advisory board to speak on behalf of athletes. Ironman is showing that they’re looking to take input from athletes – hopefully I can provide that.”
Craig is looking to the future and hoping to use his new role as ambassador to provide mentorship and support for the younger athletes out there, hopefully paving the way for the next generation of Craig Alexanders. We will get to see Craig in his new role on May 4 where he will be part of the live coverage at the Ironman 70.3 U.S. Pro Championship in St. George. June 9 is when we will get to see him in racing action as he looks to record his first win of 2013 at Ironman 70.3 Kansas. Craig also plans to reclaim the world titles he held in 2011, as he plans to race at Vegas and Kona for the championship races later this year.
“I’m the kind of ambassador who is going to try and beat all the athletes on the head,” he says. “When I race, I race to win.”
