Podcast (Episode 22): Gary Hines, Ninja Warrior and Team USA Handballer

Gary Hines in action for his club team in Germany, HSC Bad Neustadt. I wonder why they call him Hang Time?

Gary Hines has been a mainstay of the U.S. Men’s National Team for 14 years.  More recently he’s been a fan favorite on German TV’s, Ninja Warrior Germany.

In a wide ranging interview we discuss his recent Ninja escapade as well as his journey from foster care, to discovering handball with the Atlanta Boy’s and Girl’s Clubs and Condors, to the U.S. National Team to playing professional handball in Spain and Germany.  It’s quite a story and at age 33 he’s not done yet by any means.

Here are some links to more information on the topics we discussed.
