Camp No Sight No Limits was founded by elite blind paratriathlete and 8 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.
Camp 2019 was a smashing success, held in North County San Diego hosted by the Ecke YMCA. We had athletes from Chicago, San Diego, Salt Lake, and San Jose. We had guides from as far as Connecticut come to volunteer and great support from Tailwind Endurance nutrition, Swim West and Swim Labs. The campers spent five days learning cycling skills, swim video analysis, stroke correction in the pool, ocean swimming, and learning great run mechanics from Coach Cindy Gary. Our campers are ready to tackle Ironman this year, sprint tris, and the San Diego Tri Challenge with CAF this fall. We are so proud of our graduates and can't wait to follow their progress!
We have BIKES! And a new case! Any athlete who needs a tandem for a race but cannot afford one can now have access to our stable of tandems to borrow for races and events. We purchased a brand new Scicon travel case to ship these safely and our athletes can borrow as long or as short as they need them to train and race. BikeFlights.com has offered financial assistance in shipping this bike safely door to door.
Camp 2020 - Dates TBD, but likely the first week of November Wednesday-Sunday
Candy is an amazing visually impaired athlete from San Jose CA. She has RP and has been a kayak and white water guide for many years for adaptive athletes. When she's not giving back to the community, she is busy getting ready for her first race. Candy has a can do attitude and we are excited for her to complete her first race this spring. She is already an exceptional swimmer, and is truly at home in the water!
