Diagnosed with a severe pediatric brain tumor, Patricia Walsh became blind at age five due to complications of surgery. As a teenager she struggled with depression and hopelessness. Today, Patricia is a world champion triathlete and award-winning engineer. She has raced in over 12 marathons and ultra-marathons. When a friend first mentioned triathlons to her two years ago, she immediately signed up for the Ironman, before even owning a bike! Last year, she set the world record for blind athletes, blowing away previous female and male records by over 50 minutes. Patricia has a degree in computer science, becoming one of the first blind engineers at Microsoft. Patricia is the National champion for the Olympic distance and recently secured Bronze for the United States in the Short Course World Championship in Beijing, China 2011.Today Patricia aspires to represent her country in the 2012 & 2016 Olympics in both track & field and triathlon.
