The track-and-field competitor returned home on Sunday after nearly 3 weeks at the games and found her deadbolted garage kicked in and her bedroom “torn apart” reports the Asbury Park Press.

The robbers not only made off with cash and jewelry but also things she hoped to pass onto to her children someday. “Now I can’t,” said an angry but tearful Leitner.  Also missing were things the three-time track and field competitor earned at the Paralympic Games in Beijing and Sydney, Australia but Leitner did not name specific items.

The theives may have targeted her home as there are clues the they knew exactly where to go in the home.

Leitner placed fifth and seventh, respectively in the 100-and-200 meter races in London. She begins training for the 2016 games in October.
