Leah Goldstein has never let anything get in the way of her achieving her goals. No matter how impossible they seemed to everyone around her. As a young girl, she wanted to be Bruce Lee because she was bullied in school so she started training and after a few years, she became the World Kick Boxing Champion title at the age of 17.
She then decided she wanted to be James Bond so she enlisted into the Israeli Defense Force and became the first female Elite Commando instructor who transitioned into a special-forces unit, combating terrorism and violent crimes.
She moved back to Canada at the age of 30 to pursue a cycling career and although they told her she was too old, she defied the odds and started winning races. In 2005 as Sponsors started calling, she suffered a terrible accident and was told she could never compete again. Leah used her trademark no limits mental endurance to train on her own and not only did she start to win, she entered the World’s toughest race, the 3000 Mile Race Across America and despite getting Shermer’s Neck on Day 4, Leah won in her category.
In 2021, Leah went back to do the Race Across America again and this time, she made history as the first female solo cyclist to be the overall winner in this grueling 3,000 mile (4,800km) long endurance race, with a time of 11 days 3 hours and 3 minutes, at an average speed of 11.8mph.
Leah’s is a story of the will to succeed, the commitment and resilience to reach your dreams and to live a life with NO LIMITS. Leah shares an inspiring message of strength, perseverance, and the determinant will to never give up and empowers all who hear her to push past their limits.
Leah’s personal memoir, “No Limits” was published in 2015. In 2023 a documentary about her incredibly inspiring life story will be released.
