Craig “Crowie” Alexander
Australia • 08:03:56
The 38-year-old Aussie, who won the event in 2008 and 2009,
added a third Ironman World Championship title to his resume,
finishing in 8:03:56. He broke the course record, set in 1996 by
Luc Van Lierde, by 12 seconds. Alexander is only the fourth person
in the history of the race to win three times and the first person
ever to earn Ironman World Championship 70.3 and Ironman World
Championship titles in the same year. His race featured a 51:56
swim split, 4:24:05 bike split and a 2:44:03 run split.
Just a mindbending achievement.
