About Diamond
Dixon qualified for her first Olympic team only days before her 20th birthday as a member of Team USA's 4x400m relay pool. Dixon was the youngest woman on Team USA at the London Olympics and ran in the qualifying round of the 4x400m relay that went on to win gold. Though she is young, she is not without experience. Dixon has also represented Team USA at World Juniors, World University Games and  Pan-Am Juniors. Dixon has claimed an NCAA Indoor 400m championship (2012) along with both a runner-up finish (2011) and a bronze medal finish (2013).
