    With temperatures reaching upwards of 100 degrees in the Nevada desert, the world’s best triathletes took to the course with their eyes on the Ironman 70.3 World Championship. Germany’s Sebastian Kienle thinks he surprised a field of projected favorites, but runner up Craig Alexander seemed completely confident that Kienle deserved his title. Kienle broke away from the lead pack early in the bike portion of the race, citing it as the only way he was going to beat the stacked men’s field. Mission accomplished. On the women’s side Great Britain’s Leanda Cave conquered a world-class field of her own. Overcoming some early-year set backs, Cave dominated a stacked list of international competitors to claim the women’s Ironman 70.3 World Championship.

    It took very little time for the Ironman Asia Pacific Championship, held in Melbourne, Australia, to become a monumental and historic race. Sporting the new Oakley RadarLock sunglasses, Craig “Crowie” Alexander earned top honors at the inaugural event in record time, amidst one of the strongest fields ever assembled outside of Kona. Alexander’s win came at a sub-eight hour pace, a time that is rarely seen and highly sought after in the triathlon world. To say the first running of the Ironman Asia Pacific Championship was thrilling would simply be an understatement.

    Craig Alexander was already a beast prior to the 2011 Ironman World Championship in Kona. Now you can mark that down…officially. The previous two-time World Champion added yet another glorious crown to his collection. But this wasn’t just another title…if winning such a coveted and challenging race was ever considered ordinary. This time, he shattered Luc Van Lierde’s 1996 Kona course record, finishing in an astonishing 8 hours, 3 minutes, 56 seconds. Even as he suffered through some cramping through the grueling final stretch of the race.
