A simple verbal invitation in passing shaped Ginolfi’s life. His best friend at the time was playing field hockey and extended an invite to Ginolfi and his two sisters, together a trio of triplets, to a training session. The fast pace and excitement really caught Ginolfi’s attention and now 18 years later he is still playing. Ginolfi has helped the national team record a first place finish in 2012 at World League Round I and a second place finish at the Pan American Cup in 2009.
