Come the 2012 Olympics in London, Michael Lehmann stands a reasonable chance of representing the United States as a vital member of the U.S. rowing team.
Lehmann got close to making the team this year as a coxswain (“KOK-sun”), taking second place in individual tryouts. His biggest handicaps were his age (23) and level of experience (five years) – not his congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD).
