From the streets of Sofia, Bulgaria, a young athlete destined for greatness, Alexander Bozhilov’s journey began with a splash at the age of 4, diving headfirst into the world of swimming, achieving multiple natonal-level medals and recognition. Yet, it wasn’t long before his ambitions expanded, propelling him towards the exhilarating realm of triathlon and aquathlon.

Bozhilov’s rise to prominence has been nothing short of meteoric. At just 18, he boasts an impressive array of accolades, from clinching the title of Vice World Aquathlon Junior Champion in 2022, to dominating the European circuit with multiple Junior and U23 medals, his track record speaks volumes. Not content with regional success, Bozhilov’s triumph as the African Aquathlon Elite Champion in 2024 showcased his ability to conquer global competition.

But Bozhilov’s talents extend far beyond the confines of aquathlon. With a staggering six-time reign as the National Junior and U23 Champion in Track and Cross Country, he has left an indelible mark on the athletics world. His podium finish in the Elite National Half-Marathon Championship for 2024 further solidified his status as a hybrid athlete with an insatiable hunger for victory.

Yet, for Bozhilov, success is not merely measured in medals and titles. It is about pushing the boundaries of human potential, inspiring others to chase their dreams, and leaving a lasting legacy in the annals of sporting history. With his sights set on the 2028 or 2032 Olympics in triathlon, he continues to train with unwavering determination, fueled by the relentless pursuit of excellence.
