Five world titles, 25+ years of podiums and counting, Kona course record holder for 6 years, and more. Crowie is legendary and is certainly one of the best triathletes of all time.
When we spoke to him we found out things like:
- He got a late start in the sport and was never that confident.
- He therefore regarded himself as an underdog, and this made him work harder.
- He and Macca had a business deal go bad, but he clearly respects Chris.
- He is a captain for the upcoming Collins Cup so he gets to choose the athletes for his team.
- He runs with his kids and soon may not be able to keep up with his teenage daughter.
