No O for Ultimate

In the spring 2011 issue of USA Ultimate's magazine, the 'Opening Pull' article reported the positive news that Ultimate had a 20% growth in sports participation. Moreover, Ultimate was in the top 5 [#1 Triathlon/Adventure racing (47%); #2 Lacrosse (33%); #3 Gymnastics (28%) & #4/5 Rugby + Ultimate (20%)].

Another interesting tidbit was a statement that Ultimate as an Olympic sport is "an unlikely the near future."

Instead, Ultimate Flying Disc will continue as a 'trend sport' in the World Games.
