Still crushing it at 45.


Quote:
Alexander, the 3-time Ironman World Champion and 2-time Ironman 70.3 World Champion, showing no sign of decline at age 45, combined a 5th-best 22:27 swim, a race-best 2:06:55 bike split, and a race-best 1:13:08 half marathon to finish in 3:48:50.


Dude blows my mind.

Really proving to me now that he is much better than Macca.

For a long time they were even. but now Macca is fat and Crowie is killing it still.

Longevity.

Not only athletically but as a human being! Craig can always go back to Kona and not have to look over his shoulder!

Crowie is showing what one can do if you never really stop. Of course he is declining, but from where he started(best in the world) his decline places are better than most current pros. Cam Brown is also leading the old guy pack, older than Crowie and still doing low 2;40's in ironmans. IT does my heart good to see such love for this sport, I had it once like that too. And there are a few more out there, Andy Potts and a few others are approaching mid 40's as well, and still factors in many of the larger pro races..

Monty, those guys in their 40s are still kids. Let's see if they still have the passion in their 60s!

This time around in Kona I had a chance to talk to Cam Brown for a few minutes. Frankly, I know most people would be more excited to talk to some of the more current professionals but to me Cam is the ultimate. I asked him what the secret to racing at a high-level at his age-is/was. I wasn't shocked by the answer, but always interesting to hear another person say it. He really has had some impressive Ironman races at an older age.

It was funny seeing that pic.... It was like someone had photoshopped prime crowie into a pic with modern pros. I had to double check but the new sunglasses made it look genuine... Really great calibre!


Remember Dave Scott showing whats possible in that department 23 years ago.... running 4,45 in 1996 to get 5th at 42 years old

Ken Glah has got to have some record for performance longevity

keeping fresh, staying mentally healthy, not pushing himself till he burns out. I can't see Lionel Sanders still doing it at 45..

Huh????? What does it prove exactly? That he wants to continue doing the sport as a Pro whereas Macca decided to pursue other goals?! I think we knew that.

So if that's what your point, why didn't you make it?
The comment you posted previously was nonsense.

Yes, about someone else. Are you saying you think he's arrogant?

Reckon there are some young neo pro’s floating around not happy seeing a bloke twice their age front up at the same races and take the spoils of war.

All respect to Crowie!

i think farris' mum would agree with you lol

but surely its not obvious .

macca won everything from itu oly world champ to kona as well as roth frankfurt etc
crowie certainly better as a lat bloomer but then macca has won by far more races in his younger career where crowie was kind of marginally above patrick lange level while macca was world class.

you can like macca or not but i guess its fair to say superleague is one of the best things happening in triathlon and he plays an important role in this
no doubt most mums would prefer crowie as son in law , but macca did make tri more interesting .

i think in their own way they are 2 greats in the sport.


btw in the poll i feel like the name rob barell is missing. and potentially fernada keller

No, absolutely not arrogant... He is a solid guy with impeccable manners even when his peers werent and trying to pull him to thier level.... Thats respect!

Your wording was just typically diplomatic and respectful style he might use... Toward others... So a funny coincidence or to imagine him typing that under an alias on st about himself... Funny because absurdly out of character and paradoxical

I feel that Cam is one of the more under appreciated competitors. What he has done, how high of a level he has competed at, and for how long is just amazing. He's a machine.

Speaking of TG, have you "retired"? Taking a break?
