- Players on the Jr. Rolling Timberwolves wheelchair basketball team had the chance to meet some of the Paralympians who gave them the inspiration to succeed.

2012 London Paralympians Chuck Aoki, Sarah Binsfeld, Ian Lynch and Rose Hollermann returned to their roots on Saturday to play in the Jr. Rolling Timberwolves alumni game and to meet some of Minnesota’s young athletes with physical disabilities.

Aoki, Binsfeld, Lynch and Hollermann were introduced to wheelchair sports at Allina Health’s Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute as children, according to a statement. Aoki, Binsfeld and Hollerman are currently training of the upcoming 2016 Summer Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.
