My Name is Haseeb Ahmad. I lost my sight from the age of 10 years old due to an eye condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa.
I was diagnosed with the eye disease very late on into my teens and registered blind immediately after diagnosis at 17 years old. I have had to overcome many personal challenges over that time and throughout my adult life.
I have written about my personal journey in my book “From blind Man to Ironman”. The book is aimed at inspiring and motivating every one of all ages and backgrounds. It is about overcoming Blindness, refusing to give up, discovering my beautiful Guide Dogs, picking up a dead bird on a tandem ride and setting the world record for the fastest Blind Ironman Record.
