About the Author

Craig Alexander, known by his fans as "Crowie," has been named one of the greatest male triathletes of all time by "Inside Triathlon" magazine. He has found success at every level of the sport and ascended through the triathlon ranks to claim five Ironman and 70.3 world championships in the past five years. Craig's dedication to triathlon is surpassed only by his devotion to family--his wife, Nerida, and two young children, Lucy and Austin. Triathlon's first family hails from Sydney, Australia, but spends the race season in Boulder, Colorado. Paul K. Robbins shadowed Craig Alexander for over a year to capture the passion, craft, and challenges confronting the professional athlete. He has been behind the lens all his life and has worked commercially since 1985. As a former age-group triathlete, Paul knows firsthand where to look for the true beauty of the sport. He lives and works in Sydney, Australia.

"In his book "As the Crow Flies," Crowie has done something different. His simple and direct dialog about a period of time when the pressure was highest and the spotlight shone brightest on him gives a solid sense of who he is and what the public already senses about his solid moral compass in every part of his life surrounding his sport. Crowie's book will not disappear into bookshelves once it is read--the magnificent photography helps narrate the story and makes it come to life and seem more real. I read about his workouts, races, or circumstances, then looked with new eyes at the photographs again and again. "As the Crow Flies" is a spectacular avenue in which he has chosen to share himself and his achievements." -- Paula Newby-Fraser, 8-time Ironman World Champion
