WFDF Announces Freestyle Results from the Preliminary Round at World Urban Games

14 September 2019

The first day of competition for Flying Disc Freestyle at the World Urban Games featured all 12 teams competing in two pools of six teams to determine who would advance onto the second round. With only the top four teams advancing from each pool, one drop could cost a team enough points to drop them into the bottom two and end their dream of a gold medal.

Although there were a few minor shuffles among the top four seeded teams in each pool, the team from Poland ended up seed-busting up two places, which knocked the Canadian team just under the cut line. This secured their spot in the second round on Saturday morning.

WFDF ready for the World Urban Games

13 September 2019

The World Flying Disc Federation and its athletes and officials are ready to commence the Flying Disc Freestyle competition at the inaugural World Urban Games (WUG), being held 13-15 September in Budapest. Freestyle Flying Disc is one of six competition sports to be featured, with the others being 3x3 Basketball, BMX freestyle, Breaking, Roller freestyle, and Parkour. The Games will take place at the Nagyvásártelep (Market Hall) in the south of Budapest, just 15 minutes from the city center. The whole area, originally built in the 1930s, is being regenerated specifically for the WUG.

With 24 athletes from nine countries in the competition, the Flying Disc discipline of Freestyle combines aspects of gymnastics and dance with the basic game of throw and catch, and it is one of the most artistic and technically-challenging disciplines in Flying Disc sport. Mixed gender teams of two athletes will perform choreographed routines consisting of throws and catches of varying degrees of difficulty, and moves such as air brushes, nail delays, and triple-spinning catches. Routines will be for three minutes in length and are evaluated by judges who base their scores on the difficulty, artistic impression, and execution of the routine. The team with the highest score wins (70 is a perfect score).

Much of the action will be broadcast live on the Olympic Channel at http://www.olympicchannel.com. The schedule is as follows (all times UTC+2, or CET time):

  • Prelims: Sept. 13 — 14:45-17:15
  • Semi-finals: Sept. 14 —10:45-12:00
  • Finals: Sept. 14 — 16:00-16:45
  • Awards: Sept. 14 — 16:45-7:00

10 September 2019

Finland defeated Germany 8-0 to win the 2019 WFDF 2019 World Team Disc Golf Championships (WTDGC), which were held in Alutaguse, Estonia from 21-24 August 2019. Taking the gold medal had been the ambition for the Finnish team from the beginning of the event — they sent their strongest team and did not lose a match throughout the Championships.

Though the German team played well and pushed the Finns in the final round of games, they came up short but a silver medal was above their level of expectation coming into the event. Seeded seventh and in their first WTDGC, they outperformed all their opponents until this championship round.
