Team USA Wins the Gold!

The past three days has seen the ultimate frisbee games at the World Games in Duisburg, Germany. The World Games is a sort of tryout for sports to see if they are feasible as an Olympic sport, and so the IOC is present and taking notes during the Games.

That being said, Team USA has finished with the Gold medal, beating Australia in the finals 13-11. Why does this matter to you? Well, because my girlfriend is on the team, and I'm happy for her, that's why. And also because it is pretty sweet for Ultimate Frisbee in general, as the IOC has been pretty amazed by the level of the sport (athleticism, community support, organization, etc). So we may see Ultimate Frisbee in some Summer Olympics within an 8-12 year period.

Here are some pictures taken by one of Team USA's wives who got to go along for the ride. Lucky girl.
