Basketball isn’t the only sport we’re excelling in.
The whole nation went crazy over the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship where Smart Gilas Pilipinas played an amazing run and placed 2nd against Iran in the Finals yesterday. But what most probably didn’t hear about is how spectacularly we also did in the Ultimate scene.
Last weekend, the World Flying Disc Federation Asia-Oceanic Ultimate Club Championships 2013 took place in Singapore where 3 out of 4 Filipino teams placed both in the Mixed and Open divisions.
Sunken Pleasure placed 2nd in the Mixed Division, losing to Ellipsis (a strong Australian team), which makes Sunken Pleasure the #1 team in the whole of Asia.
Mixed Nuts placed 3rd in the Mixed Division, winning against Singaporean team, Shiok.
And lastly, Bisaya Mongrels won the Open Division Finals and was named Champions in a close game against Crackerjack.
It makes you swell with Pinoy pride how slowly yet surely we’re taking over the Ultimate scene globally. Congratulations to the four teams that represented the country: Sunken Pleasure, Mixed Nuts, Bisaya Mongrels, and Rogers. We’re all so proud!
