Leydin burst onto the scene in 2013, winning the National Senior All-Around title at just 15 years of age – and has been consistent ever since.
It was a monumental achievement from Leydin – whose career thus far has been littered with outstanding achievements. Top five finishes in the Vault and Beam in the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Olympics; second in the teams’ competition at Canada’s Gymnix; fourth placings at the Pacific Rim and Jesolo Teams’ tournament, as well as a first placing in the teams’ tournament at the Nadia Comaneci Invitational International are examples of her talent.
After winning the National All-Around title in 2013, Leydin backed up in 2014 with a second place finish behind Georgia Godwin in 2014, before finishing third in 2015 behind Godwin and Emily Little.
Leydin currently trains at the National Centre of Excellence (Melbourne), and shares her coaches Mikhail (Misha) Barabach and Tracey Penaluna) with fellow senior national team members Georgia-Rose Brown and Mary-Anne Monckton.
It appears that her strong 2013-15 form is ready to vye for selection to the World Championships Team, which will head to Glasgow, Scotland, in October 2015.
