Amy Dixon

Blind Athlete, Speaker and Patient Advocate

Come and hear Amy speak about having a personal vision.  “You don’t need sight to have a vision”.

Amy Dixon is a visually impaired professional triathlete and member of the USA Paratriathlon National Team.

She is the reigning International Triathlon Union Aquathlon World Champion and is ranked 6th in the world in triathlon in the Paralympic international Rankings.
She recently moved to San Diego to focus her training for the next two years on her road to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

Amy lost 98% of her vision to a rare autoimmune disease and now serves as a patient advocate and Vice President of the Glaucoma Eyes international non-profit.
Last year, Amy founded Camp ‘No Sight No Limits’, the first-ever camp dedicated to producing elite level blind triathletes in San Diego. She hopes to discover, inspire and coach the next generation of elite blind athletes as they embody her mantra, “You don’t need sight to have vision”.

For her service to the blind across many countries and borders, Amy has been awarded recognition from the Lions Club International as a “Lion of Sight” and from Senators Joel Blumenthal and Joel Anderson for her continued dedication to improving the lives of those living with low or no vision.
