Meet Rose Hollermann

Rose Hollermann is a three-time Paralympian (2012, 2016, 2020) and gold medalist (2016). She plays professionally in the Men’s International League for ADM Econy in the Canary Islands. Rose graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Arlington where she led her collegiate wheelchair basketball team to multiple national championships.

In 2001, Hollermann and her family were involved in a car accident that took the lives of two of her brothers and caused her to be partially paralyzed from the waist down. As part of her rehabilitation, she was introduced to swimming at the Courage Center in Minneapolis. From there, she tried sled hockey, track and field, archery, cross-country skiing and wheelchair basketball. She discovered her talent and passion for wheelchair basketball and started playing basketball in 2004 for a club team in Minnesota. In 2011, she became one of the youngest players on the U.S. women’s wheelchair basketball team at age 15.
