Questions for Malissa Lundgren Interview

My good friend, Malissa Lundgren, will be in town visiting me tomorrow and has agreed to do an an interview. Voted as one of Skyd Magazine’s Starting 7 this year, Malissa is a monster athlete who will get anything deep that floats. Also a gifted thrower, she’s a key player for both Team Canada and for the Capitals. Malissa was awarded Ultimate Canada’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2011.

What would you like me to ask her?

One big topic I’d like to discuss with her is all about women in coed ultimate – how a woman’s role has evolved over the years, where she sees it going, and what women can learn from playing coed. I’ve talked to a lot of women who are unhappy with their coed teams and I think having some tips from one of the best female players in the world will help a lot of coed teams work more effectively together.

Send me your questions and I’ll try to work them into the interview!

  1. Hi Rob,
     
    I think many people would be interested to hear more about the history and future of the Capitals.  The team has become a bit of a lightning rod in discussions about the new club restructure and it would be great to hear more from someone in the know rather than rely on rumors.  Beyond that, I would be fascinated to learn about how the Capitals – a team split into two different cities – trains, practices, and develops chemistry.
     
    Thanks,
    Gwen

  2. Hey Rob, I don’t know Malissa, I never heard of her before (no offense) as I’m French. Yet as you said she is a great athlete and for that she must have trained hard to be awarded “best female Canadian athlete” in 2011. In sports you sometimes have to train by yourself to improve some particular skills. Does she have done that ? If yes, how did she find the motivation to ? And I’m asking this as her being an elite player. I personally can rely on my throwing and physical skills most of the time but I know I could be a much better athlete and ulti player if I’d go train by myself, so I was wondering…

  4. Hi Rob, great idea!
     
    I’ve seen many coed teams playing mainly using their men. It’s especially common at the lower competitive level, I think – definitely in Europe.
    If Malissa has experienced this, how did she handle and try to improve the situation to equally use all members of the team? How can narrow-minded not-to-girls-throwers be convinced and trained to trust them and include them fully into the game?
     
    Thanks!
