Let's hear a bit more about Haider.

Listen for the words determined and merit.

This is Haider Rashid, the single Iraqi rowing athlete in his home city of Baghdad, one of the most violent in the world. Haider was given a wild card entry to the Olympics in Beijing but he's determined to make it to London on his own merit. If we work right and do it the right way, I think it is possible to qualify, so I will do my best to qualify because I need to.
