What do you love about playing Ultimate frisbee? Running around on an oval and getting sweaty with the best, most supportive people. I love the community, the athleticism, the focus on spirit and the opportunities to play it all over the world. Its also full of inspirational people constantly trying to make it better – more inclusive, more competitive and less gender-biased.
Why did you choose to play for Kaos? When I started playing I just followed some uni friends along, but I stayed because I love it and I love the people of Kaos.
