Athlete Showcase – Leila

Dyslexia and ADHD kept Leila from sticking to one sport or activity her whole life. Her mother also said Leila has always struggled making friends. That is, until last summer when she discovered the sport of triathlon and the Ironhawk Juniors Tri Club. Leila,10, said she found something she loved and has the support of new friends and adults. She has since joined a swim team and runs with her dad. This season Leila told us, “I plan on going faster and getting stronger.”


I plan on going faster and getting stronger
