Wieber Adds Leah Smith to 2022 Roster
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Head gymnastics coach Jordyn Wieber has announced the addition of Leah Smith to the 2022 Razorback gymnastics roster. Smith brings with her to Arkansas a noteworthy pedigree of excellence.
The Spring, Texas-native recently won the crown for the 2021 Nastia Liukin Cup, delivering the highest scoring floor routine of the competition in a clutch fourth-rotation performance, finishing with a 38.800. Smith also had an impressive showing at the 2021 National Championships in Daytona Beach, Fla. finishing first on floor and second in the all-around competition.
She has won five Texas championships in the last two years, including two on vault and two on floor. She also has earned multiple Level 10 regional championships, earning beam and all-around championships in 2019 and a vault championship in 2018. In 2019, Smith finished fifth in the country on vault and seventh on beam at the Women’s Junior Olympic National Championships.
Training at World Champions Centre since last summer, Smith has blossomed into a consistent all arounder, scoring over 39 points twice and posting a perfect 10.000 on floor and 9.950s on vault and bars. Prior to training at World Champions Centre, she trained at AIM School and Gymnastics.
