Alexander has made history in the sport of triathlon several times. He was the first pro to win both Ironman and Ironman 70.3 world championships in the same year. He has also set multiple course records. With five world championship titles under his belt, the Australian is one of the most recognizable faces in triathlon. Though he announced his retirement from full distance racing, he continues to compete in the sport in shorter distances, especially at local triathlons. He is on the pro start list for Ironman 70.3 Geelong in Victoria, Australia next weekend.
“I am really happy to be continuing my relationship with TYR. Their wetsuits, speed suits, goggles and swim tools are at the forefront of triathlon performance and benefit me greatly during racing and training,” said Alexander.
TYR also looks forward to continuing their relationship. “Craig is an exceptional talent and a true member of the TYR family,” said Matt DiLorenzo, Chief Executive Officer of TYR Sport. “We couldn’t be more excited to have him continue his career with us.”
