Legally blind girl, 10, competes in first triathlon

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — A 10-year-old girl in California is a big dreamer. She’s legally blind – but she’s not letting that stop her from competing in a Triathlon.

Heaven Vallejos competed in the Spring Sprint Sunday morning at Mission Bay, undergoing a 100-yard swim, 3-mile bike ride and three-quarter mile run.

Watch Vallejos in the inspiring video above.

    Awesome!!!!!most ten year olds are playing video games and whining about stupid things there’s a lot of grown ups that can learn from this instead of laying around or complaining about their own self pity this ten year old is the greatest!!!
