Australia's Leydin: 'I'm Doing This For Them'
(5 votes, average 4.20 out of 5)

Featured in the April 2017 issue of International Gymnast magazine, former Australian national all-around champion Madelaine Leydin said she is thriving in the new phase of her career as a team-oriented freshman at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

“I’d been doing the same thing for a very long time,” said Leydin, who was Australia’s top all-arounder at the 2015 World Championships in Glasgow. “That made a new motivation for me, doing it for the team rather than myself, and watching the others practice and thinking, ‘I’m doing this for them.’”
