A warm welcome home to all of our players who were representing Great Britain (and beyond!) at the World Championships of Beach Ultimate (Royan, France) last week!
In the Mixed division, Chun Lee (also on the GB U24 development programme) made history, representing Malaysia at their first ever world championship event, while Abi Cohman, Hannah Brew, and Tom Mannings were part of the GB Mixed squad that took home 7th place – beating a boisterous Italy to make top 8, but losing out to eventual bronze medallists Germany in quarters.
Alize Clough and Nicole Cozens were flying the Brighton flag in the Women’s Masters division, demolishing European rivals to make the top 4, but losing out to a strong Canadian team at semis and a recharged Australia in the 3v4 playoff.
Felix Sharldow represented in the Men’s Masters division, finishing 8th after a brutally close quarter final with Spain.
Megan Hurst was part of the GB Women‘s squad who brought home bronze medals – losing out to the eventual champions, Russia, in the semi-final before demolishing Canada in the 3v4 match.
Ashley Yeo and Hayden Slaughter put in phenomenal showings with the GB Men‘s team, pushing the USA hard in the final for a fantastic game to watch, but eventually bringing home the silver medal.
Ben Rolfe also comes home with some silverware – with GB Grand Masters making the final in style over Finland, but falling to a very strong USA team.
We’re so proud of everyone, and excited to have them back! You can check out the full tournament details and placings here.
