Tobe Decraene’s Run’n’Gun Loophole

Throwing whilst running is allowed in the rules of Ultimate – Tobe Decraene heard about this loophole and has been using it to his advantage as much as possible – including against the USA’s travel calls in the World U24 Championships Final. WFDF Rules Chair Rueben Berg discusses the legality of the move, Felix looks at the technique and training needed to do it yourself, and we break down multiple examples of the move being used by Decraene in the 2023 season – scrutinising each clip for potential travelling.
