Freestyle Frisbee - Ken Westerfield

Note: Had some technical difficulties with the original Freestyle Frisbee post.
It was one of my current faves, so I'm very happy to now re post it and share it again
Huge thanks to Ken for his patience and assistance against the dark side of the Internet.

Ken Westerfield is a pioneering Frisbee player from the 60's and 70's.

Westerfield won numerous competitive events, held several records and created freestyle
techniques and competitive formats that still exist today.
(Pairs Freestyle Frisbee, 1974 Canadian Open, Toronto, Canada).

I also found this great short clip from the late 1970's narrated by Barbara Feldon
(Agent 99 - Get Smart), showcasing the talent and rise of Frisbee as a sport.

And a more recent (2009) short clip of two guys playing Freestyle Frisbee on the streets of Paris.
These guys are awesome!
