IWGA Athlete of the Year 2017 Award

Flying Disc Ultimate Mixed Team, USA

Team USA Mixed won gold in the Ultimate event at The World Games 2017. They secured their fifth consecutive World Games title when winning 13:7 over Colombia, a team to which they had surprisingly lost 12:13 earlier in the Pool play. Team USA overcame this loss and re-established a clean sweep in all of their World Games appearances since 2001.
