Alex Ivanov was born on October 24, 1987 in Concord, Massachusetts. The native of Carlisle, Massachusetts began his collegiate career at the University of Hartford, where he was a member of the track and field team. He still holds the school record for the decathlon and heptathlon events. He then transferred to Fitchburg State, where he competed on the track and field and soccer teams for two years. He currently holds the school record for the pentathlon.
Alex has always been a fan of sliding sports, but he was first introduced to the sport of skeleton when he was in college. He was browsing the USA Bobsled & Skeleton Facebook page and saw a post about a sliding school. Instead of going on the standard spring break vacation, he went sliding for the first time. He's been hooked ever since.
- He is a black belt in karate, self taught from YouTube.
