Leanda's career at a professional triathlete started back in 1994 and she has since transformed herself from a short course specialist to a potential Ironman Champion. Leanda is known for having one of the best swim/bike one-two punches in the sport and her improving run makes her a legitimate threat at any distance.
Leanda currently lives full time in Tucson Arizona with her husband Torsten Abel who is also a professional triathlete.
