Hi Europe,
after traveling back from Lecco, and being back at work, here are the last results:

U17 open
In the Final, Great Britain was up against Austria, and went into the lead. Austria did not give up, hand a nice Come back around half time; however, GBR got their act together and took gold, like in 2013. Silver Austria, Bronze France.

U17 girls
As already written saturday morning, we saw a spectacular final, with the two final debutants Netherlands and France. Netherlands gold, France silver, Austria Bronze. The classic powerhouses GER and GBR on places 4 and 5.

U20 women
the bronze medal played was moved to saturday morning on an extra field by the dorms. In the pouring rain, Colombia beat Austria convincingly; however Austria succeeds Germay as best European team. Germany in 5th place, with the satisfaction of having lost to Colombia wuith a very small margin (17:14).
The final in the stadium saw Canada versus USA, with a very convincing US team. Lots of physical power, hard to believe this was juniors... the rain and win did lead to some suboptimal passes and more turnovers than expected on the Canada side, giving the US an easy win (17:9).

U20 open
on the lower places, most placement games were sacrificed to the schedule delays, due to the weather.
The final saw again USA-CAN. The lawn in the stadium had survived the two earlier finals in the rain surprisingly well, almost no damage. By now, the rain had almost stopped, but the ground was soaked, which led to occasional slips.
Canada had not won in many years, the USA were always dominant in U20 open; the last non-USA win was Riga 2002, when Canada beat Sweden (in the absence of the USA).
This time, Canada came out strong, got the D in the first point and the break. 2nd point, 2nd break; Canada up 2:0!
The teams then traded points to half time, 9:8 Canada, with Offense in the 2nd half. As the USA had been so dominant in the past, and in the U20 women's final, most of the crowd went with the "underdog" Canada.
The second half saw more turnovers, and the USA worked the breaks back to equalize at 13:13 (if I remember correctly. many specators believed that USA would now cruise over a slightly insecure Canada, but actually both teams kept fighting fiercly. It got to a 16:16 universe, Canada on O. Under the eyes of spactators by the completely filled main stands, the Canadians under huge pressure, they threw a long bomb to a receiver cutting deep.
http://skydmagazine.com/2014/07/wjuc-2014-amazing-universe-point-canada-vs-usa-open-final
The disc was hanging hight in the air when the receiver jumped up, to the shock of the audience; it seemed he had jumped way to early, thereby passing under the disc. But Darren Wu just jumped higher than anyone had imagined, seemed to stay airborne forever and safely pulled that disc down to this historic victory.

Congratulations Canada, and all the other winners. Congrats to all the many teams who got the money together to come and play and enjoy this outstanding event, and especially to the spirit winners:

U17 girls: Austria
U17 open: Ireland
U20 women: Colombia
U20 Open: Colombia

It was a memorable experience for all participants, even though many detals of the organisations were not fully accomplished at the start, and the weather conditions were challenging. What definitely needs to be improved is the communication flow, especially in view of the fact the at WUCC there will be 3 times as many participants.

Full results are available at http://www.worlds2014.org/junior, full SOTG results to be published soon.

The 35 fields were under much stress due to the weather, but due game rotation and cancellations survived, so that they should be well recovered for WUCC. Just pray for little rain and plenty of sunshine over the next 10 days.

See ya all soon,

Chris
EUF youth committee

Liebe deutsche Frisbeegemeinde,

Vergangene Woche fand die Weltmeisterschaft und im U17-Bereich die offene Europameisterschaft im Junioren-Ultimate statt. Dort haben die deutschen Teams einmal mehr unter Beweis gestellt, wie stark sie im internationalen Vergleich sind. Dass Deutschland nun schon seit Jahren in allen Spielklassen ganz vorne mitspielt, hat mehrere Gründe. Wir Nationaltrainer bekommen nach und vor allem während so einem Turnier immer sehr viel Lob und freuen uns darüber natürlich sehr. Nichtsdestotrotz ist es mir ein Anliegen dieses Lob an diejenigen weiterzugeben, denen oft viel zu wenig für ihre hervorragende Leistung gedankt wird. Deshalb:

Liebe Junioren Coaches in ganz Deutschland: Ihr macht eine überragende Arbeit und es macht einen unglaublichen Spaß mit den Spielern, die das ganze Jahr über von euch ausgebildet werden, bei so einem Turnier anzutreten. Macht weiter so!

Wer sich jetzt nicht angesprochen fühlt und sagt: Das hätte man aber nicht über die Wurfpost schreiben müssen, dem sag ich: Wir sind zwar schon gut, aber noch nicht Weltmeister. Wer sich also hier noch nicht angesprochen fühlt, kann das ja vielleicht in Zukunft ändern und ebenfalls an einer großartigen Jugendarbeit mitwirken.

Grüße,
Marco Müller
U20 Woman Nationalcoach

Hello out there,

morning of finals day here.

Friday began with sunshine, and 15 matches scheduled; among those the 4 quarters in junior women. The sun held out, and so did the fields, so actually all matches could be played. Yippieh!

Canada beat Japan, and USA beat Russia quite safely. The other matches were closer; Austria, who had already beat the Euro champ Germany earlier, also managed to win against Italy to go to the top 4. In parallel, World champion Colombia took on Germany. This was a hard fought close match, in which Colombia could eventually get 2 breaks ahead to win 17:14.
CAN and USA then won their semis; their final and the bronze medal match are scheduled today.

In U17 girls, Germany, after the huge disappointment of missing the final, could not get their motivation to a 100%, whereas their opponent Austria was hot to get this rematch for bronze, and took this medal. The final on the center court saw 2 teams that had never played this before. Inspired by the openeing ceremony with national anthems, they gave the audience an awesome match with hardly any drops or unforced errors, one of the best u17 girls matches I have ever witnessed. The sun was out, and Netherlands went into the lead for half time. They then were able to contorl this all the way to the end, 15:12 (or

Junior open had the semis; Austria beat France, and GB beat Germany. Again, the German team seemed too disappointed to fight hard enough in the brone medal game, wheras France displayed stability and goes home with a medal.

Junior open had 2 games per team. In the semis, USA beat Italy. Canada and Germany was played on the center court, and Germany really were out to surprise Canada, and held up to around 5:5; but Canada stepped up the pace even more, and play for gold today. The bronze medal game also began as a tough and very close fight, with just a small edge for GER at half time. The second half saw Germany cruising, though, so they go home proudly ith bronze, and both teams finished 1 place higher than 2012.
Lower placement matches coult not be played, due to the weather delays.

One seet story: the Dutch, with 1000 years experience at draining wet places, offered the grounds keeper to deepen the thainage ditches. he gave them shovels, and they recruited more players from other nations (especially Ireland, who also know about rain...). Together they worked until late on thursday, improving the drainage, which helped in prese ving the fields. So if we have the same siuation at WUCC, teams may want to grab a shovel before risking cancelled matches... anyway, a Great hand to the Netherlands initiative, and all helpers!

Gotta, run, U17 open finals stat soon. Get the streams on Skyd, or follow WING for live scoring.

Cheers,

Chris

Hi y'all,

I did not have wifi last night, thus no report. Both today and yesterday were very eventful, it will be hard for me to get it together now at 2.30am, but I try. The weather forecast just changed from "great flood" to no rain this night, so we may not need to go to the fields at 6am to asses weather play is possible... fingers crossed!
There has been a lot of rain: over the past few weeks (so the ground is well soaked), at the tournament start, wed evening... much more than usually here, making the otherwise perfect fields more fragile. But the ground keeper is very cooperative and helpful, allows us to play wherever possible without doing too much damage, and actually rapairing fields constantly.

Othe than that, the tournament also has some hiccups, as can be expected from an event this size. Most things function well, some do not. Looking at the immense effort that was put into this, the 50 things that may not be good need to be put into relation with 950 that are great, so many teams are very happy, others are a bit unnerved by some flaws.

Any, back to the action: let me try to remeber wednesday.

Junior Open: USA, CAN, GERE and ITA safely won the 4 pools, with straight wins. They then faced off one another in new seeding-games; USA was up 9:6 over Canada, Germany 11:6 over Italy, when a thunderstorm came nearer and play was stopped due to lighning danger, at around 6:30pm. The same was true for all pre-quarters, and several matches in other divisions.

Junior women: in the power pools, most games went according to seeding: USA beat GER and FIN, Colombia beat ITA and RUS, Canada beat Latvia and Great Britain. Austria, after beating Germany in the pool could also win over France and Japan. The big game was Russia beating Great Britain.

U17 women: the 2nd round robin was started. The exciting one was the evening match of the top2 FRA-NED, which was at 6:4 when the storm came.

U17 open: The power pool is led by Germany, with 3:0 wins. Austria beat France, leaving both at 2:1, followed by GBR and IRE at 1:2.

Then on wednesday evening, after the storm came incredible rain, leaving the fields soaking wet most of the day thursday. Thus, most matches had to be cancelled, with Simon Hill (WFDF) and myself getting plans B, C and more out of the drawer to try save the tournament, not knowing how many matches we would be able to play at all.

We did get some 16 games in on thursday. Most division formats were altered, to make up for less matches, and some of those changes are disadvantegeing certain unfortunate teams. Not a great position to be in... but mostly things go on very satisfactorily, most teams have one or more games less than originally scheduled.

In U17 girls, Germany and France played their 2nd round robin match, in which Germany had to make up for their earlier 4 points loss, and furthermore would not get a chance for a rematch against the Netherlands. The game ended 12:11 for Germany, so France gets the final tomorow against the Netherlands. GER plays Austria, who won against GBR.

U17 open: again most matches cancelled; tomorrow will see the semis GER-GBR and AUS-FRA, thus the top4 of 2013. This will be exciting to follow, all 4 teams have displayed amazing ultimate. Lower down, Israel and Italy get a recovery chance against Ireland and Sweden; Colombia and the Netherlands play for 9th.

Junior women:
Power pool x ended in a showcase match at the stadium, in which Canada beat Colombia 13:11. This morning has the Quarters USA-RUS, COL-GER, CAN-JAP and AUT-ITA. Semis later in the day; most placement games will need to get cancelled, as the tournament is over on saturday.

Junior open:
The few games today culminated in a floodlight game at the stadium with hundreds of frenzied spectators, who had already watched the COL-CAN women's game. Italy took on Israel in a quarter, both teams with huge support from the stands. Italy came out with a self assured body language and started 2:0 before Israel got on the board. Italy got more breaks and was up 9:5 at half time. Both teams were handling well, especially Italy's dynamic mix of give and goes with safe clap catches, and occasional hucks was convincing, but actually Israels style was similar. Israel actually made a good comeback, but Italy took the game eventually.
Thus, the semis on moday are USA-ITA and CAN-GER, who had beat ustria in quarters. The 2nd semi will be live on Skyd.

So follow the stream, or the tournament website or face book, and the scoring (all posted earlier this week.
Also streamed will be the final of the U17 girls friday 16:30, and the finals on saturday (U17 open at 11, U20 women at 13, U20 open at 15).

We are looking forward to an amazing stadium atmosphere again!

Chris
Do some sundance, everyone, we DO want to play as many matches as possile!

Hi out therr,
had a great day here. The conditions are sweet: great soft fields, some sunshine, some clouds, around 25°; couldnt be bettet.
We are switching some fields tomorrow, and as we have 34 pitches total, this is real luxury. As expected, today there were
plenty of close matches, and some surprises and epic battles.
In U17 women, the 1st round robin is finished, and finds the Netherlands unbeaten, followed by last years rookie France.
Germany who were cruising in 2013 only got 3rd place, followed by Austria and Great Britain. We are curious to see the rematches in round 2.
In U17 open, again France has made a great step forward, beating the 2013 champion Great Britain in the pool final. Colombia is also strong
but actually lost all matches, which is due to an again raised level of play. The other pool sees Germany and Austria in front, who went to universe point.
U20 women sees Colombia, USA and Canada cruising; it seems like these are the safe medals candidates. The other top seed Germany had to bow to their neighbor
Austria, after trading points in the first half, Austria took the second to finish 17:10. Much improved women's teams are France, Russia, Japan and Latvia,
in this division of 19 teams.
U20 open had lots of amazing action today. In the lower seeds, Chinese Taipei (aka Taiwan) and the Czech Republic took it to universe point, which Taipei took at 16:15,
giving them their 2nd victory. Tomorrow they battle it out with Poland, who had a great start as a newcomer team, beating the Czechs and Belgium; the winner gets
a spot in the pre-quarter.
The same goes for Israel and Switzerland, also in a direct game for 3rd place in their pool, as well as Japan and Ireland. Japan faced Great Britain a few hours ago
in a night game in the stadium with flood lights and plenty of local spectators, and GB took that convincingly, 17:7. we are looking forward to the next night game on thursday.
The hottest action was in pool B. In the last time slot, Colombia as top seed took on Italy, who had already beat Sweden, Latvia and Russia. Next to them, Russia and Australia
were having a great match. There was a lot of hot action, then some spirit issues; those were resolved by the teams themselved in a spirit time out, without needing much help
from the outside. It was great to see how well the self refereeing and the spirit time out worked; eventually Australia did win the match, but both teams were well reconciled.
Outstanding! Meanwhile, Italy was convincingly leading Colombia, probably the biggest surprise thus far, as Colombia had proven to be a junior ultimate powerhouse and ever growing
over the last WJUCs. And they did pull through a mighty comeback, drawing hundreds of spectators to pitch 28 near the dinner tent. The game was turning, spectacular avtion,
and in the end Italy pulled it through 17:14, thus taking the pool lead. They have to defend this against Australia tomorrow in the last pool game, which may become the next
nail biter; 13:30 on the center court, also on Skyd stream.

Other hot stuff tomorrow:
Women FRA-AUT, USA-GER, COL-ITA
U17 girls NED-FRA, GER-AUT
U17 open power pool in the afternoon. Tomorrow's weather forecast is as good as for today. So we are looking for many more hard fought games, as all the service around the ultimate play are now functioning well.
Tomorrow night will see the trading night, right at the fields.


Good night,

Chris

Hi out there,


todyesterday saw the parade, ceremony and opening game of WJUC14 at Lecco. All teams got here safely, over 1000 players and many coaches, guests and staff are enjoying their trip to Italy. The parade through town was colourfull, and noisy with all 24 nations trying their cheers.
The stadium turn out perfect size for ultimate events, with stands all around, nicely elecvated for great views. We enjoyed the ceremony, and Thomas Griesbaum of WFDF opened the event, for Italy to take on Ireland in Junior Women. Ireland only has a 3 year history in junior women, but have improved greatly. For the first time under a big audience, they showed their skills, but also their nerves. So the european runner up of 2013 Italy took half at 8:1, before Ireland lost their nervousness and gave Italy a more even match. Final score was 17:4.
Today started with all teams shuttling by bus to the amazing La Poncia venue with 33 sweet fields, whic went surprisingly smooth. Except once there, no matches could be played; lighning prevented this. Everything kicked off 90' late, and then we had to impose another 90' break due to more thunderstorms. So, a tricky start.
WFDF and EUF jointly were able to manage the schedule, so that in the end all 53 matches scheduled were actually played, until late evening. So no schedule changes for tuesday as of yet, even though the weather may continue to challenge things throughout the week. But the fields are still in great condition.

Most matches were not too close, this is expected to change tuesday and wednesday. Great Britain was struggling against New Zealand but eventually won 15:13, also Latvia surprised the world by keeping up with Australia, 17:15 AUS was the final result. Most top seds were cruising, only Sweden as seen 2 in pool B had to bow to Italy and Russia.

In U17 girls, 2013 champion Germany were facing the Netherlands, and lost by 3 points. And in U17 open, Sweden was lined up agaínst the very strong Colombia team and actually took the game 12:8. Results overview at http://www.worlds2014.org/junior/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/ResultsDay11.jpg

Skyd live streams all center court matches, next is Austria vs Israel Open at 9:30 CET.
http://skydmagazine.com/2014/07/wjuc-2014-italy-vs-ireland-womens

There also is live scoring available from all matches, a brand new systen; fingers crossed it will work...
http://wing23.com/wing/public/index.php/match/list/1

Spirits are high, the amazing infrastructure seems to be functional, and the weather forecast for tomorrow is quite good, fingers crossed. we are expecting a ton of hot matches, with the 1vs2 seed matches in the junior women pools, and 2vs3 seeds of the 4 open pools.

Enjoy the action,
