German-born Chicagoan and World Champion Wheel Master Wolfgang Bientzle paid a visit to Target Center during the Timberwolves victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.

Wolfgang, a director, choreographer and professional German Wheel Acrobat has been credited with being the most successful German Wheel Acrobat worldwide. In his 35 years experience, he has won eight World Champion Titles, 11 European Champion Titles, and more than 60 German Champion Titles.

Whether it be, rolling back and forth with only his feet attached, spinning on all edges of the wheel, doing the splits between the pegs of the wheel, or lunging himself inside and out of the wheel in gymnast-style, Wolfgang wowed the crowd with all aspects of his acrobatic performance.

Wolfgang is currently the Master of the Rings at CirquesExperience in Chicago, which educates and trains wheel acrobat gymnasts. For more information on Wolfgang and his performances, visit
