Vertical Face Plant

Ultimate Frisbee is a game played on the honor system. There is no referee - the players are supposed to call their own fouls, out of bounds, etc.  My son (in yellow shorts) was going up for the disk here  when he was slammed by this player who, amazingly, said he didn't foul him.

This play ended my son's ability to finish the tournament - off to the doctors today.....

UPDATE:  No frisbee practice for the next three days, heat and ice for his strained and swollen hamstring. No biggie thankfully.

Dot, that is an amazing action shot... but at your son's expense obviously! I hope nothing too serious, and that he is ok.

Nice shot Mom! I hope he is ok!

Glad it wasn't serious! The glass ball on my photo today is tied on with a zip tie, so it doesn't move.

Wow, your boys do go for it - they seem fearless! Hope the injury heals soon. What a professional photographer you are to be taking this shot!

btw, do you know that the comments with a line of dots are spam? If you run your cursor over the dots you'll discover some dubious site.
