Athletes Men › Alessandro Fabian
Alessandro Fabian’s journey into triathlon was inspired by Michael Phelps – or rather the fact he couldn’t keep up with him. Alessandro grew up in Padova, Italy, and was a swimmer as a child, racing competitively until he was 18. However, it was at that age he watched Phelps and described him as a shark. By comparison, Alessandro said he felt like a goldfish. At that moment he knew he had to move to be a sport where he could be a shark as well, so he set his sights on triathlon.
Alessandro had already been dabbling in multisport. He had raced in aquathlon and then duathlon, where he enjoyed great success winning the Under-23 World Championship as well as a European title. He made the full switch to triathlon in 2006 and never looked back.
His rapid progress saw him crowned Under-23 World Champion in 2009 and he made the Italian team for the 2012 London Olympics, where he produced the best result his country had ever seen in the event, finishing tenth. Alessandro went on to capture multiple Italian national titles and was again in Italian colours at the 2016 Rio Olympics, where he finished 14th.
He has been a consistent figure at elite level on the world triathlon stage for more than a decade and has previous experience of Super League having raced at the original test event in Hamilton Island in 2017.
