TEAM CANADA PERFECT AFTER FIRST DAY AT WORLDS
Ultimate Canada – Team Canada has arrived in London, U.K. for the 2016 World Ultimate & Guts Championships (WUGC) and they are off to a hot start! Canada has teams in five divisions at WUGC: Men’s, Women’s, Men’s Masters, Women’s Masters, and Mixed, with each team winning their opening game of the tournament.
“The first day of any tournament is always a bit nerve racking, and this was no exception. Our first opponent of the tournament was Great Britain – they were intense, gritty, spirited and it was an amazing first game to set the tone for the week.” – Sarah Bobak, Team Canada Women
