Chihuán stated during the 2010 FIVB Women's World Championship that it would be her last tournament with her team and that she would step down as player and captain. After Peru's final match against China she told reporters in interviews that she did not leave because of some physical or age related issue but due to "circumstances" that she could not control.
In 2011, Leyla Chihuán was elected to the Congress of Peru on the list of the fujimorist Fuerza 2011 party, representing the city of Lima. She is one of four female ex-volleyball players serving in Congress for the 2011-2016 term.
