Lauchlan Leishman loves to compete in physical activities, and the Ironman events are the perfect way for him to maintain his fitness due to their competitive nature.
Lauchlan Leishman is a Melbourne-based triathlon athlete with a passion for the sport. Lauchlan grew up loving triathlons, always desiring to take part in one. As he grew up, he knew he had to get in shape to become fit enough to withstand these events. Lauchlan trained nearly every day to build his muscle and stamina, ultimately working his way into great shape.
Once he was physically ready to compete in a triathlon, Lauchlan started with a few smaller events, working his way up to the major triathlons. Today, he is an Ironman Triathlete, competing in the Ironman events near him. Ironman Triathlons are a series of events consisting of a 3.86km swim, a 180.25km bike race, and a 42.20km marathon run, which occur in that order. Ironman Triathlons happen all over the world, and they are considered to be one of the most difficult physical events in the world.
Lauchlan Leishman loves to compete in physical activities, and the Ironman events are the perfect way for him to maintain his fitness due to their competitive nature. Lauchlan hopes to one day travel to Hawaii and participate in the Ironman World Championship, which is held each year in Kailua-Kona. This event is considered more difficult than other Ironman events, as it is more physically demanding due to its length and exhausting conditions. The event is also televised and is the staple of the Ironman brand of triathlons.
Although Lauchlan Leishman is a big fan of Ironman Triathlons and plans to continue partaking in them, he is also interested in discovering other triathlons, both locally and internationally. In particular, Lauchlan hopes to take part in more of the most difficult triathlons, including the Altriman and the Embrunman in France, the Enduroman (covering both London and Paris), and the Norseman in Norway.
While Lauchlan Leishman is a fan of participating in triathlons and other difficult sporting events, he also enjoys travelling to do so. One of his favourite experiences was competing in an Ironman event in Croatia. Lauchlan enjoys spending time discovering new locations and experiencing their culture, from their food to their views and everything in between. Lauchlan’s goals for the future include travelling to new countries for Ironman events and other triathlons, as well as taking time to further vacation in the locations he travels to. Ultimately, Lauchlan would like to travel to as many places as possible and compete in as many triathlons as he can find time for.
