DK IX dedicated to Don Albietz
Once again, you kids rocked the town! We were so proud of all the triathletes and fun runners who showed what it takes to complete this challenging course. We are grateful to all of the volunteers, Red Rock Search and Rescue, Blue Diamond Volunteer Fire Department, Las Vegas Cyclery cycling and triathlon teams, and all the residents and volunteers who made it such a fun, safe, and exciting event. Thank you to all the sponsors for helping us make this event a successful fundraiser for the Blue Diamond swimming pool. This historic pool is probably the oldest continually running community pool in Nevada and without your support we couldn't keep it going, and without it we couldn't do Diamond Kid. Diamond Kid makes the pool possible and the pool makes Diamond Kid possible. It's a beautiful thing. This year a very special thank you goes out to Minta Albietz who gave out a big check to all the winners and an athletic youth award for every athlete to wear on their sleeve. Thank you Minta and all Diamond Kids for carrying on Don Albietz' heroic legacy with your youthful vitality, and positive athletic energy!
