Five-time triathlon world champion, Craig Alexander, has entered the sport’s most exclusive inner circle of all-time victors. When Alexander broke a 15-year course record to win his third Ironman® World Championship in 2011, “Crowie” joined Dave Scott, Mark Allen, and Peter Reid as one of triathlon’s greatest champions. Crowie’s book, As the Crow Flies: My Journey to Ironman World Champion, reveals his approach, his training, and the relationships that delivered the race performance he says was a decade in the making.
As the Crow Flies is available in bookstores, bike and tri shops, and online.
In his own words and through striking photographs from acclaimed sports photographer Paul K. Robbins, Crowie shows what it takes to race at the elite level—and how he balances the work of triathlon with his first priority, his wife Neri and their young kids, Lucy and Austin.
Epic workouts, gruelling travel, record-setting race performance, giving back to sponsors and the sport—these are the tools of Crowie’s trade, not to mention sleek wetsuits, cutting-edge time trial bikes, and technical footwear. While those who know the sport of triathlon intimately will say that performance is determined by how triathletes put the three disciplines together, As the Crow Flies shows that winning major races comes from working toward excellence in every aspect of the triathlon way of life.
As the Crow Flies offers triathletes and sports enthusiasts a beautiful, intimate, and honest portrait of the life and work of professional triathlete Craig “Crowie” Alexander, five-time triathlon world champion and one of the sport’s most successful athletes.
