Tom, I think you might find that the young have won many games in the past and fairly recently, maybe even more than old. However, happy to be corrected.

Chris has confessed in a comment over on the Brisbane Ultimate Blog - http://brisbaneultimatedisc.blogspot.com/2008/01/and-it-became-magically-fertile.html

I'll get you to go over there, rather than repeat here, because the Blog would love the traffic.

Well Al Don said that it was only the second time he'd seen it at a training camp since 2000... Perhaps there are worlds training camps that you have gone to that he hasn't? The old VS young for the dingos would be a entirely different matter to the old VS young for the whole squad. I shifted from being in the middle of the young un's to one of the oldest at the mixed camp, cut off was early '84s I believe

Would that make sense?

Sorry about the late response I hadn't checked UltiTalk in awhile -I just sent you a fairly length PM about why I pulled out.

As for everyone else the shorter summation is... I was just a little worn out and I hadn't had a real break (longer than a couple of week) from Ultimate since I started (2005).

I was tossing the decision up from New Years to the first training camp a lot, but I'd already bought tickets to both so I just figured I'd go to the first one and just see how I felt. I pretty much got there and just had an Adam Gilchrist moment. I just knew it was time to take a break. I played like a dog all weekend dropped a couple of catches, but more importantly I attacked the disc poorly, didn't layout once when I had probably 3 or 4 deadset D's if I left my feet - same applied on O. Long story short my heart wasn't in it from the first game and I knew after the first day of training camp that I couldn't commit the next 6 months to something I was 100% into.

So with after a brief chat to JMac during the training camp he told me not to do the jerk thing of wait to not be selected (which was my initial plan) rather that I should inform the selectors ASAP so I don't waste their time. Ahhh Johnny... you can always count on him to give the honourable advice!

So at this stage I'm just planning to play Nationals this year and probably take a break for the rest of the high level Ultimate.

2008 Mixed Team Announced

Dear All,

On behalf of the AFDA, the Mixed Selectors would like to announce the Australian Mixed team, the Barramundis, who will compete at the 2008 World Ultimate Championships in Vancouver in August.

All the people involved in this process have contributed greatly to the future success of the Barramundis in 2008, from the volunteers at the selection camps through to everyone who applied for selection on the team. Thank you.

There will be many more opportunities to continue to support the Barramundis and the other Australian teams in the coming six months, we encourage you to take up those opportunities and be a part of their success in Vancouver.

The 2008 Barramundis are:

Women:
Rebecca Carmen (NSW)
Mel Gangemi (VIC)
Laina Hall (ACT)
Leanne King (ACT)
Cath Matthews (VIC)
Gaby Melo (NSW)
Kristen Nott (QLD)
Vickie Saye (ACT)
Lucy Stevenson (ACT)
Andrea Wang (NSW)

Men:
Lee Baker (VIC)
Sebastian Barr (VIC)
Peter Blakeley (NSW)
John Damiani (WA)
Alistair Don (QLD)
Chris Freise (VIC)
Brett Middleton (SA)
Adam Mortimer (ACT)
Warwick Shepherd (NSW)
Steve Wealands (VIC)
Max Wheeler (ACT)
Huy Vu (SA)
James Yorston (NSW)

This makes for a squad of 23 excellent players.

Needless to say, this was one of the hardest teams to select with serious quality players missing out on the team due to the high standard currently in Australian Ultimate. We have every confidence those selected on the team will represent Australia at the highest level with commitment and spirit.

Big congratulations to all those who made the team, and best wishes as you carry the mixed flag for Australia at World Championships. The World Championships will run August 2-9 in Vancouver, Canada.

I like Simmo don't know a whole lot about the ladies, but on the boys side it looks like there isn't a whole lot of height, but there is definitely a few guys that make up for it with speed. Now that the men's, women's and mixed teams are selected I'm really keen to see how Australia stacks up in each division and to see if we can hold/improve on our current world ranking!

I'm a little surprise that a few of the girls made it over Isobel. And perhaps the selectors are picking a short fast team because it suits their style of play? (short and fast)

Good luck to all the teams! Looking forward to hearing the juniors and masters teams now

That's the squad. I think he meant the Team.

Do you know when that will be finalised?

From my vague memories of chatting with my brother, the Juniors selection camp isn't until March I believe, so I'm assuming late March will roughly be about the time the Juniors team is named.

On behalf of the AFDA, the Masters Selectors would like to announce the
Australian Masters Team, the
Taipans, who will compete at the 2008 World Ultimate Championships in
Vancouver in August.
The names listed below form the majority of the Australian Masters Team
with a few remaining spots being determined over the next few weeks. The
reason for the delay in announcing the last few spots is to ensure that
we allow a final group of squad members a proper chance to display their
ability at or near 100% fitness.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in this process and
stress how impressed we have been with the quality of players available
for selection at the Masters level. This made selections very difficult
and our appreciation goes out to the AFDA Board for their guidance and
patience throughout the selection process.

This is a very experienced and talented list of players with the
potential to succeed in Vancouver and we encourage you to support all
the Australian Representative Teams in their bid to medal at the
World Championships.

The initial group of players comprising the 2008 Australian Masters
(Taipans) are:

1. Charles Blumer
2. Tom Brennan
3. Chris Burwell
4. Steve Campbell
5. Nathan Chan
6. Geoff Doty
7. John Greenfield
8. Duncan McIntosh
9. Jens Meyer
10. Declan Moore
11. Andrew Morris
12. Brian Petteys
13. Mat Ryan
14. Anthony Solomon
15. Piers Truter
16. Craig Turnbull
17. Sacha Vidler
18. David Zuk

We look forward to announcing the remaining spots in the near future and
congratulate those listed above on their selection to the Australian
Masters Team.

Cheers
The Masters Selectors
(Jens Meyer, Andrew Stanley and Steve Campbell)


------------------------
Great lineup. Not sure why they've named themselves after one of the original Gladiators though.
