Back in 2019, we got a chance to talk to USA Rugby team member Chuck Aoki.

I’m an admitted Olympics and Paralympics GEEK so having chuck on for some cool behind-the-scenes insights was really fun for me… I did also ask him one question that had always been on my mind, but I never had the comfort level to actually ask….

Chuck was super chill and that made me comfortable enough to ask… it had to do with the terms olympian versus Paralympian.

Chuck has a CRAZY Wheel Chair Rugby resume…

Paralympic Experience

  • Two-time Paralympian (2012, 2016); Two-time medalist (1 silver, 1 bronze)
  • Paralympic Games Rio 2016, silver
  • Paralympic Games London 2012, bronze

And he’s added 2020 games participant hopefully a medal this year as well and …. This year it was JUST ANNOUNCED this week, that he was 1 of 2 USA flag bearers to kick off the Tokyo games.

From a few years back in 2019 here’s my convo with USA Paralympian, Chuck Aoki.
