Episode 252: Aisha Praught Leer
Aisha Praught Leer joins me on the show today! She represents team Jamaica and trains out in Boulder with Joe Bosshard’s group. In this episode we get to hear about why Aisha chose to run for Jamaica and what it looked like when she met her birth Father who for the first time and how that played into her decision to represent Jamaica.
Aisha and her husband William Leer are both sponsored by Under Armour and I was really intrigued by what that relationship looks like as it’s a brand we don’t see a ton of track and field athletes sponsored by. I LOVE what she had to say about running for UA.
Aisha is a Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist, a World Finalist, Olympian and Jamaican record holder. She has been transitioning to focusing on being a 1500 meter runner and she shares with us how she feels about this time off for racing and what she’s looking forward to once races are happening again.
