WFDF announces national teams qualifying for The World Games 2017 Ultimate event

Untitled designWorld Flying Disc Federation just announced the national teams qualifying for the Ultimate Frisbee Tournament at IWGA The World Games 2017 which will be held in the city of Wroclaw (POL) from 20 to 30 July 2017.

Per the WFDF qualification system, Australia, Canada, Colombia, Japan, Poland, and the USA will participate in IWGA event. WFDF’s qualification process is based on results across the mixed, men’s and women’s championships during the WFDF 2016 World Ultimate and Guts Championships in London with the five top combined results together with the automatic host country bid.

It is always exciting to bring the best teams and athletes in the world together to compete in this prestigious multi-sport event,” commented WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch. “The World Games assembles the best athletes from the non-Olympic sports as a showcase for future Olympic ambitions. WUGC winner and World Games title defender Team USA is leading the teams on the road to Wroclaw, followed by last edition’s silver medal winners from Australia and bronze winning Canada. The teams from Japan and Colombia, the latter having thrilled the home crowds at the last World Games edition in Cali, Colombia, in 2013 by narrowly missing out on the podium in the bronze medal game complete the field, together with the home team from Poland, making sure that the people of Wroclaw will get a chance to cheer their own team at the event for its best performance. At the end of the day teams from four continents are represented in our World Games event. We fully trust in the ability of Ultimate as Flying Disc sport to impress again in Wroclaw, with great figures of spectator attendance, TV telecast and media interest, and sporting performance.”

WFDF Ultimate Committee chair Brian Gisel added that “WFDF has also modified the eligibility rules for the World Games teams setting the gender ratio of the mixed squads to equal numbers of male and female competitors, underlining our commitment to present an event fully meeting gender equity. I am sure that with this field of teams participating we will add another chapter of success to the story of Flying Disc sports participating in the IWGA World Games since our first appearance 2001 in Akita, Japan.”.
