AOUC 2015: Thoughts from the Chinese Taipei Women’s Team

Posted by: on Feb 4, 2016 | 3 Comments

This is a very exciting piece for me to post. Not only is it a guest piece, which I love because it shows other voices in the Asian Ultimate scene, but it is also the first non-English language piece on the site.kahovka-service

Asian Ultimate is a community that shows great love for one sport in many different languages. It is an honor for me to be able to host different expressions of that love. Hopefully this is only the first of many pieces to be posted in non-English languages. And hopefully broadening the languages used on this site will expose more people to the game and bring more voices into conversations about ultimate in the region.

This piece was submitted by one of my favorite players in Asia, Cheng Yi-Shan from Taiwan. Here, she and her Chinese Taipei team captain, Cloud, discuss the work they put in to get ready for AOUC, their experience at the tournament, and their surprising (to them) triumph in the women’s division.

(if you are interested in submitting a piece of writing for in any language [English, Chinese, Tamil, Vietnamese, Korean…] please drop me a note at

    Well done!!! That’s a great story of determination and over-coming disappointment.

    I’m sharing the link with the mainland Chinese Women. Some of whom will be on the China team in Mixed Division at the World Championships in London in June this year.

    It’s a pity that neither the victorious Taipei Women’s team from AOUC, or any other Taipei teams, are going to compete in Ultimate at WUGC. 🙁

    I see that there’s a Taipei team in the GUTS comp though.

      It is disappointing. I was excited to see what they would be able to do on the world stage…
