Leisel recently moved from Ken Wood's training squad to train under Stephan Widmar, which paid dividends when she won three events - two breaststroke and one relay - at the 2005 World Championships in Montreal.
She stormed onto the Olympic scene in 2000 and surprised everyone by not only qualifying for the Sydney games but also winning two silver medals in the 100m breaststroke and the 4 x 100m medley relay at the age of 15.
She also won the 100m/200m breaststroke double at the 2005 Australian Short Course Championships.
She can speak Chinese and is interested in photography.
Liesel has said that winning the world titles in Montreal 2005 - after five years of minor medals - has lifted a burden off her shoulders.
