Freestyle At The Torino Olympic Village

Lui Tasini reports that there will be a freestyle demo at the Olympics this week. It was arranged by Emanuele Maltoni (Ema or Manu) from the Olympics. He was part of the Paganello organizing team a few years ago.

On Friday (February 24), Clay and Ale Collerá, Fabio Sanna, Eleonora Imazio, Matteo Gaddoni and Luca Medri freestyle will visit the Olympic Village for an unofficial Frisbee Freestyle show.


I am asked all the time "is freestyle in the Olympics"? Now can I say yes? Many of us have watched big events like the Olympics and wondered what it would be like to be one of the "chosen" sports. Some disc sports are already used in Olympic training. For instance, I saw a segment a few years ago showing the US volleyball team using beach ultimate as cross training.

I can’t wait to see photos from the show and hear about everything: what the Village is like, whether the athletes watched and what they thought, whether they have any security issues. Everything.
