 Conrad Leinemann enjoyed considerable success as an indoor player before he switched to beach volleyball and hooked up with Jody Holden. Leinemann was UBC's athlete of the year in 1994 where he graduated in human kinetics. He also played one season indoor as a professional in France.

 The pair reached new heights at the Pan Am Games where they were seeded fifth but defeated a powerful field including the number-one seeded Brazilians to win the gold medal. The victory before a raucous home crowd easily made-up for the couple of missed paychecks on the pro tour.

 Off the sand, Leinemann is a part-time model for Elite and recently did a shoot for them in Italy. The pair often host clinics for young players at domestic events across the country and make frequent appearances at schools and youth programs.
