| Other || Affectionately known as Tattie in the world of bowls, Alex was number one on the WBT ranking list until overtaken by England's Andy Thomson earlier in 2005.|
The Edinburgh-born star has won the world pairs with both Richard Corsie and David Gourlay as well as the world mixed pairs with England's Amy Monkhouse.
Three times a winner of the World Indoor Singles title (1999, 2003 and 2004), many believe only a mystery knee injury - which saw him hospitalised in Norfolk - in January 2005 prevented him from making history by becoming the first person to win the most important prize in the sport on four occasions.
He also boasts gold medals from the Commonwealth Games and World Outdoor Championships, and is acknowledged as one of the most successful Scots bowlers of all time.
Away from the sport, Alex enjoys football, supporting Heart of Midlothian FC, and relaxes by watching The Bill on television.
