Earlier this year I was approached by a friend about an new sports team called the Philadelphia Phoenix who needed some photographic coverage. The Phoenix is part of the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) which is a league for the sport of Ultimate (Ultimate Frisbee). This is a professional sports team, and the athleticism of the competitors is really something to watch. The pictures in the gallery below show a fraction of the continuous action. At first I was a bit skeptical of guys throwing a Frisbee around a football field. But now, having seen one of the games, let me assure you, these wiry, strong, determined gladiators take to the field with power and grace. It is an impressive sight. If you have some time Sunday May 5th at 1pm come see them at home against the DC Breeze at O’Shields Stadium, Cheyney University.
