Some of the best young talents from around the globe have recently been to Heidelberg, Germany to compete in the Open, Mixed and Women’s division. GB took a strong team this year, including some Warwick Bears. GB’s Mens finished 8th, Womens 8th and the Mixed team 13th. We talked to the Warwick Bears who made the trip to Germany.
How long have you been playing frisbee, and how did you start?
What is your role in the GB team?
What was your best on pitch moment of the tournament?
Any advice for the rest of Warwick Bears?
Advice for the rest of bears…wow that’s a very vague question . My advice would be twofold I suppose.
Work fucking hard. Throw whenever you can. Go to the gym. If you want to get better, every minute you put into it is worthwhile.
My other piece of advice is to know when to stop. Make sure you allocate time to non frisbee things, and non course things. Down time is really important. If frisbee is your down time, great! But if not, find something else to do.
How did you find the trials to join the squad?
What is next?
Next, well, I’m majorly burnt out honestly. Two cycles of U24s in a row and doing my NQT year has properly taken its toll. I’m taking a year off to focus on fitness and not think about frisbee at all. It’s gonna be great!
