Alexeyev qualified for the men's K-2 1000 metres at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London by placing first from the 2011 Asian Canoe Sprint Championships in Tehran, Iran.[5] Alexeyev and his partner Alexey Dergunov paddled to a third-place finish, and eleventh overall in the B-final by approximately two seconds behind the winning Danish pair Kim Wraae Knudsen and Emil Stær Simensen, posting their best Olympic time of 3:14.867.[6] Three days later, the Kazakh pair edged out Japan's Momotaro Matsushita and Hiroki Watanabe for first place by twenty-four hundredths of a second (0.24), in the B-final of the men's K-2 200 metres, clocking at 35.494 seconds.[7]
