2015 Paratri World - Gotta Want It

Limitations only exist if you believe they exist.

Over the past few years, I have been training and racing with Maleia Tumolo in hopes of representing the United States in the sport of Paratriathlon.
Together we plan to race several ITU events to qualfiy for Worlds in Chicago, September 2015.
This involves traveling to several countries over the next few months.
Our future dream is to represent the United States in 2016 RIO OLYMPICS.

My goal is to gather a community of supporters to help me and my guide in our pursuit to reach Worlds. Please show your support with a donation or by sharing my campaign with others. Together we can achieve anything! Thank you!

About Diane Berberian

Diane Berberian is a woman who knows no limits. Living with Macular Degeneration (MD), Diane has become one of the most celebrated and successful female Ironman athletes in the sport. Never racing the same long distance course twice, Diane thrives on taming the challenges that the sport of Paratriathlon offers; earning her the nickname of "The Iron Maven".

With the aid of a sighted guide, Diane has pushed herself to remain competitive in a sport that draws only the strongest of character to it - the Ironman; a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run.

Diane's drive and passion is endless, as she continues to pursue excellence in sport and in life. She is the definition of champion in para-athletes and as an educator to the next generation of para-talent.
