TWO lo­cal women will rep­re­sent Aus­tralia in the World Fly­ing Disc Fed­er­a­tion’s 2018 World U24 Ul­ti­mate Cham­pi­onships.

Ali­cia Lim (21), from Su­bi­aco, and Max Qua (21), from Ned­lands, have been hand­picked from 230 play­ers who par­tic­i­pated in an ex­haus­tive se­lec­tion process and will join the women’s St­ingrays team.

Ul­ti­mate Fris­bee com­bines el­e­ments of grid­iron, net­ball and touch foot­ball in a fast­paced, non-con­tact sport and all play­ers are re­quired to self-ref­eree.

Un­der-24 Ul­ti­mate Cham­pi­onships tour­na­ment direc­tor Anna Haynes said teams from across the globe would de­scend on UWA Sports Park in Mt Clare­mont this month.

“The Perth world cham­pi­onships is go­ing to be the big­gest and best the world has seen to date,” she said.

Lim started play­ing com­pet­i­tively in Sin­ga­pore in 2013, but took it up a notch when she moved to Perth in 2015.

Qua said she was hyped to play her best with home ground sup­port.

The tour­na­ment will be held from Jan­uary 7 to 13. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.wu24perth.com/en_au.
