Frisbee ath­letes weather storm

Hamilton News - - COMMUNITY -

Ul­ti­mate Frisbee teams from around New Zealand bat­tled through the stormy con­di­tions at Gower Park in Hamil­ton to face off in the New Zealand Mixed Ul­ti­mate Frisbee Cham­pi­onship.

Af­ter two days of down­pour, the weather fi­nally sub­sided on Sun­day to al­low for a free flow­ing fi­nal be­tween Welling­ton’s Marvel­lous DC and Christchurch’s Crello.

The fi­nal was a close bat­tle, but ul­ti­mately the ex­pe­ri­ence of Marvel­lous DC, who re­cently com­peted at the World Ul­ti­mate Club Cham­pi­onship in Ohio shone through.

They took the fi­nal and the 2018 ti­tle with 15-12.
