UWB- What is your favorite thing about Ultimate?
RF- “Spirit of the game is my favorite thing about Ultimate, because you are concentrating on being honest. In other sports, the objective is to win. But in Ultimate, you can explore your own emotions and learn to control your emotions.” “[In Ultimate], you have to know how to react in the moment and during the play, and you continually improve yourself.”
