Team Flying Disc Germany can leave the World Games stage with their heads held high, where they caused quite a stir.
Three spectacular preliminary round victories, including one against the undisputed favourites USA (13:10), were unprecedented for Germany at the World Games.
The two defeats in the semi-finals and the bronze medal match hurt at first glance. But they signal a breakthrough for German Ultimate, which is now not only among the world's best, but is undoubtedly one of them.
It was a great performance by the players, thanks to the time, energy and passion they put into their preparation and training. But the team around the coaches, physiotherapist and management would also have deserved a gold medal. Congratulations on this overall performance and: Keep up the great work!
Here is an overview of the results from the German point of view:
Opening game / group game 1: Germany beats Canada convincingly with 13:5
