Leigh Daniel Athlete

Leigh Daniel (born August 6, 1978, in Lubbock, Texas) is the former head women's cross country coach and assistant track and field coach at Ashland University in Ohio (2005-2010). She also is an American track athlete specializing in long-distance running and fitness trainer in Lubbock. During her days as a college athlete at Texas Tech, Daniel had several top-three finishes in NCAA championship races and won numerous titles in the Big 12 Conference. Daniel's victory in the 1999 NCAA outdoor 10000 metres immediately took on legendary status among track and field observers, as one of her shoes came off during the race and she had to stop to put it back on, thus ceding an estimated 120 metres to her opponents. On July 1, 2009, Daniel and fiancé Nick Cordes won first place in the TODAY contest TODAY Throws a Wedding. As a result, the two wed on July 15, 2009, in a ceremony televised on TODAY.
