COLUMBIA, Mo. – Just months after the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games ended, preparations for the 2016 games in Rio, Brazil began. Recently, the National Wheelchair Basketball Association announced that the University of Missouri wheelchair basketball head coach, Ron Lykins, will coach the United States men’s wheelchair basketball team for the 2016 Paralympic games. Lykins will look to improve on the U.S. team’s third-place finish in the 2012 Paralympics in London.

Although this is his first stint with the men’s wheelchair team, Lykins is no stranger to Paralympic basketball as he has coached the U.S. women’s team in three different Paralympics, winning gold in 2008 and 2004 and coming in fifth place in 2000.
