Under Armour RUN team is excited to announce a new athlete to the roster – Aisha Praught Leer. Aisha will be racing tomorrow in Doha’s Diamond League series in both the steeplechase, sporting Under Armour apparel and footwear for the first time. Aisha is a Jamaican Olympian finalist and recently left the Oregon Track Club in early 2017 to train with All-American athlete, Emma Coburn in Boulder, CO.
Aisha was raised in the U.S, but decided to honor her Jamaican heritage and run for their national team after reconnecting with her biological father in 2013. She ran in the 2016 Olympics and was the first Jamaican runner ever to compete in the finals in the steeplechase.
Under Armour is thrilled to add Aisha to the team and looks forward to working with her on upcoming campaigns and providing her with the brand’s latest running footwear. She is currently running in the Miler Pro and soon-to-be-release Under Armour Charged Bandit 3.
