Morgan Leasure was born on February 5, 2001 in Colorado to Janis and Brian Leasure. She is in the International Baccalaureate Diploma program at Aspen High School. She will graduate from high school in 2019.
Morgan's mom was looking for an indoor activity for the winter and enrolled her into gymnastics at Kidzplex when she was three years old. She started her competitive gymnastics career at Aspen Gymnastics in Aspen, CO and has been there ever since.
As a first-year level 8 gymnast in 2012, Morgan finished seventh on uneven bars at the State Championships and qualified to the Region 3 Championships. She continued competing in 2013 where she finished fourth in the all-around and first on balance beam at the State Championships, qualifying to the Region 3 Championships. In 2014, Morgan placed in the top 15 in the all-around and fourth on balance beam at the Level 9 State Championships and qualified to Regionals. As a second-year level 9 gymnast in 2015, she placed first on balance beam and second on vault at the State Championships. At the Region 3 Championships, Morgan placed fifth in the all-around and first on balance beam. This qualified Morgan to the Level 9 Western Nationals in Spokane, WA where she placed 17th in the all-around, 10th on uneven bars and 12th on balance beam.
In 2016, Morgan moved up to level 10 where she placed seventh in the all-around and fifth on balance beam at the State Championships. She qualified to the Region 3 Championships, finishing eighth on balance beam. In 2017, Morgan finished sixth in the all-around and first on balance beam with a 9.625 at the State Championships.
