Malaysia Ultimate Open 2010 - We did it!

It all comes down to this. After two years of playing Ultimate Frisbee, I finally joined the MUO. MUO aka Malaysia Ultimate Open was the one tournament that I dreamed of joining. But I wasn't 100% prepared. So were most of my Borneo Bristlehead team mates. We were busy adults with very few free time. Our strong passion for the game and Sabah however is always there. We were ready to play our hearts out. Next thing you know, our squad of unique individuals arrived at KL last week for the Ultimate showdown during the weekend.

So there we were competing ourselves against teams from Singapore and Thailand. After a grueling two days under the hot sun, Borneo Bristleheads managed 16th place out of 20 teams with 3 wins out of 7 games. Although this might not seem much, the result is a fantastic achievement for the team. For the past two years, the team has never won a single game in the MUO. Finally we are really noticed with the teams from Singapore and Thailand giving some new found respect for the team from Sabah. Overall, the tournament was a fantastic experience filled with great people, great atmosphere and great Ultimate.

Now back at home, I can't help smiling and felt proud to be part of a team that made 'a change'. Since the good performance at Inti-Taylor's Open Ultimate Frisbee tournament last year, I always believed the Borneo Bristleheads will make a difference in this year's MUO. I'm so glad I was right. So where do we go from here? Hopefully more players and better results in other tournaments to come.

Go Borneo Bristleheads!
