Fleischman said, "I can do anything the sighted world can do. It just takes me a little longer."

He gets help from volunteers with the Capital Adaptive Rowing Program. Started by the Capital Rowing Club, the program introduces disabled military veterans and civilians to the sport of rowing.

According to assistant coach Nathan Ballou,  "All the problems people have, you can let them go away for a while and just row."
