Olympian Lea Davison began mountain bike racing in 2001. Since then, she’s earned a silver medal at the 2016 World Championships, a bronze medal at the 2014 World Championships, and finished 3rd overall in the 2015 World Cup series. Lea competed in the 2012 Olympic Games where she placed 11th and also in the 2016 Olympic Games where she placed 7th.
Lea’s passion is getting the next generation of females riding mountain bikes, so she co-founded Little Bellas, a mentoring program on mountain bikes for girls.
Prior to her start in mountain biking, Lea competed as a downhill ski racer.
In this week’s podcast, Lea and Sonya talked about positivity, resilience, goal setting and the importance of family. Her dream was to get a medal at the 2020/2021 Tokyo Olympics, but she missed making the team. Now, she talks about resilience and how to deal with that disappointment.
