Hi my name is Alexa Leary! I'm a triathlete from Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Australia.
I raced over in Switzerland in 2019 and placed 2nd in my age group (16-19 year olds). I am also 2 x Mooloolaba National champion (2019 & 2020).

What Inspires You
My dad is my biggest inspiration and motivation but with regards to someone who I aspire to be and look up to is Cathy Freeman. An icon who I have looked up to since I was a little girl. Seeing a strong female athlete make such a big impact through her sport is something I strive to achieve in the future.
I hope one day to make the Australian Olympic Triathlon team.
Something that works well for me is fuelling my body with the right foods and giving my body the nutrients it needs is very crucial for a good performance. I also try to eat every 3 hours as I have discovered my energy levels are way better and I can last hard and intense training sessions in the day without burning out and crashing.
