Since his diagnosis, Vincem has worked hard to overcome any obstacles he faced, both physically and mentally, in order to achieve his goals and desire to continue par- ticipating in athletics. Martin is classified as a B1, or totally blind, athlete and in the past he has compet- ed against other totally blind athletes.

In order to accommodate those totally blind athletes wanting to continue compet- ing the B1 vision class was combined with the B2 classification. This means that there are a new group of competitors Martin will have to face.B2 indi- viduals have a visual acuity of 20/600 or less. "Combining the Bl's and B2's will deft- nitely make a difference on my performance. I used to be able to beat any B1, but now there are about five top B2's I have to be concerned with," Martin said.
