This summer, I’m partnering up with the Calgary Ultimate Association. They’re a not-for-profit group focused on growing ultimate in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with their goal being to make ultimate the sport of choice for athletes. They’ve done a great job and along with running a league with over 120 teams, they also have a juniors program (12-18 year olds), a men’s, women’s and master’s team and they run an annual ultimate frisbee tournament called HoDown and SloDown, which has been held for more than 25 years.
Thomas Kuhn, an ultimate frisbee player living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, won World’s in 2008 with the Team Canada Open team. He was recently selected to the roster again this year and will be traveling to Sakai, Japan in July to compete in the 2012 World Ultimate and Guts Championships.
I’ve been playing ultimate with Thomas for about 5 years so I recently had the chance to sit down and ask him some questions. Thomas has worked hard and earned his spot on the team. He’s a testament to how hard work and practice pay off and help you become a better player.
