Leydin was a member of the Victorian team who won the gold medal in the Team event and in the individual events won bronze in the Apparatus finals on both Floor and Beam.
Representing Australia at the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games Leydin finished 9th in the All Around event and brought home the bronze medal in the Team final.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
