The road to a Colombian world championship side began when Mauricio Moore first picked up a disc in 2003. Almost immediately, he was struck by the lack of competitiveness in women’s ultimate in Colombia, and he did something about it.

Since forming the club in 2004, Moore (along with co-founder Andrea Trujillo) set an explicit goal for the program to become world champions, at the time an outrageous expectation for a non-North American team. But Moore has poured his entire soul into coaching this team and creating a family capable of achieving their ambitions. Now, having reached the pinnacle, nothing about their journey looks quite so outrageous.
