A pair of American rowers traveled to Iraq earlier this month to help train a team of rowers and coaches from across the war-torn country.
Inspired by "Invictus," the 2009 biopic about Nelson Mandela and post-apartheid South Africa's rugby team, Bruce Harold Smith and fellow rower Bill Engeman traveled to Lake Dokan, in Iraqi Kurdistan, for a five-day training session. We talk with Smith about his experience.
