Camp No Sight No Limits was founded by elite blind paratriathlete and 6 time ITU gold medalist Amy Dixon in order to help blind athletes from paralympic distance to Ironman become faster, safer and more efficient when racing and training with and without a sighted guide athlete. Her vision for the future of blind athletes in the United States is that these competitors will be competitive in their sport and represent the United States proudly in National and International competition.
Charles-Edouard Catherine (New York, N.Y.) a 28 year old, French emigrant, began losing his eyesight 4 years ago to Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). RP is a rare, inherited degenerative eye disease that causes severe vision impairment. Running became a coping mechanism for Catherine who later discovered triathlon. Catherine initially thought that triathlon seemed impossible but is determined to better his training skills, guiding communication and overall knowledge to be competitive in the sport of triathlon. “This sport teaches me how to be humble, how to face my fears, how to relish success, how to be confident again,” said Catherine. He has had a lot of success lately. In 2017 he qualified for the French National Paratriathlon Team and was a Gold Medalist at the ITU Sarasota World Cup.
