The Seattle Rainmakers recently played their first ever MLU game, and I was on-hand to get 240fps highlights.
Ultimate Frisbee is an intense sport, and I did my best to highlight the athleticism and teamwork that happens out there on the field. It’s pretty disappointing when fringe sports like Parkour, Capoeira and Ultimate get lumped into the “I don’t understand this and it has an unfamiliar name, so now it’s a punchline!” mindset. These athletes do some crazy shit, and deserve recognition for it.
I would say I was blown away. Because the level of athleticism is required is so incredibly impressive. I think people who aren’t familiar with the sport don’t realize how much athleticism it takes to compete.
