Loren’s Badass Chick: Gracia Leydon Mahoney

This week’s Badass Chick is Gracia Leydon Mahoney, a youth-olympic diver from Newton. These past few days, she’s been competing at the Youth Olympics in China… and she’s doing really well! Earlier this week, she placed fourth in the women’s 3-meter springboard contest. On Wednesday, she and her diving partner took home a bronze medal in the mixed international team competition.

Gracia lives in Netwton and has been diving since she was nine. She practices three hours a day, six days per week and clearly, it’s paid off. Not only did she get to compete in the Youth Olympics, but the 18-year-old will be attending Stanford in the fall (or… er, now?), with hopes of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.

Gracia Leydon Mahoney is my Badass Chick of the Week because of all of her hard work and determination!
