As day six brings the curtain down on a fantastic celebration of Junior Ultimate, at times it looked like we weren’t going to make it. 47 teams, having flown from the far corners of the globe to be part of around 1100 players in four different competitions, have played their hearts out. There have been bumps in the road - there can’t be many tournaments, let alone World Championship events, that can boast that they had to contend with a hurricane warning. Fields were lost due to the atrocious weather, emergency schedules were created, trees were blown over, famous Irish pop-stars were sighted and, probably the most surprising of all, the sun came out at times. But we did make it, and if you check out any of the footage on UltiVillage.com, we did it in style!
On day 7 we get to crown our champions in the World Junior Open and Women’s divisions and the European Under 17 Women’s division. The World Championship matches will have a very Pan-American feel to them and thousands are expected to pour into Tolka Park to witness what are likely to be amazing games of Ultimate - a fitting end to the week. Lets meet our finalists.
