    It’s hard to mention the sport of triathlon and not speak the name “Craig Alexander” in the same breath. “Crowie,” as he’s affectionately known throughout the industry, and the world, is an all around champion and icon of the sport. The Australian power-house has won the Ironman World Championships, in Kona, three times, becoming the oldest male winner in the race’s history, the course record holder and a true ambassador of the event. He has won the Ironman 70.3 World Championship twice, along with a list of other victories too long to mention.

    Leanda Cave of Great Britain was already a World Champion going into Saturday’s race in Kona. Cave won the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas just a short month prior. Cave proved why she is a true champion Saturday taking down a stacked women’s field on the hot, windy highways of Kailua Kona, Hawaii. The Brit overtook Switzerland’s Caroline Steffen with two miles remaining in the run to obtain the coveted crown at the end of Ali’i Drive. 2010 champion, Mirinda Carfrae ran her heart out, collapsing at the finish line, placing third. All three women completed this year’s epic IRONMAN World Championships wearing the special, custom pink and white Oakley Radarlock, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Young Survival Coalition.

    Once a year on the big island of Hawaii, something magical starts to happen. Ali’i Drive in the city of Kona begins to slowly fill up with runners. The Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway starts to host noticeably high numbers of some of the most fit cyclists in the world. Downtown Kona starts to buzz with excitement and transform into a place unlike any event of its kind. It can only mean one thing: its time once more for the IRONMAN World Championships in Kona. In truly one of the toughest test of a human’s endurance capabilities, athletes will take to the Pacific Ocean for a 2.4 mile swim, then head out on the scorching Queen K for 112 miles of gruiling pedaling and then top it off with a 26.2 mile marathon run along Ali’i Drive hoping for the privilege of hearing the coveted words “You are and IRONMAN,” once they cross the finish line. With some gutsy performances from Oakley professionals last year, 2011 will be heard to beat. However; a stacked field has returned to Kona this year...
