Ultimate is a sport that has become extremely popular among both young men and women in recent years. We’ve written before about the accomplishments of the Binun brothers, Gil and Oren, who have both been playing competively for years. As well, 2019 Jewish Athlete of the Year Sarah Jacobsohn has continued playing for Canada’s national Ultimate team.

But, when we were told that the men’s team from Manitoba, known as “General Strike” (in homage to Winnipeg’s 1919 general strike), won the recently held Canadian Ultimate championship in Brampton, Ontario - going undefeated through eight games, we were more than surprised to learn that seven of the 24 players were “members of the Hebraic persuasion,” as Harvey Rosen used to write. Way to go, guys!
