Ultiworld’s 2022 Throw Of The Year Bracket (Final)

Help decide the best recorded throw of 2022.

Ultiworld’s 2022 Throw of the Year bracket is presented by Spin Ultimate; all opinions are those of the author(s). Find out how Spin can get you, and your team, looking your best this season.

One of our most popular series to begin each year, it’s time to look back at last year and let our readers decide some of the top plays of the year from 2022.

We watched many hours of game footage and asked for help from the community to hunt down the hucks, breaks, bombs, dimes, and everything else. This was a big year for ultimate with more than enough options to fill up this bracket, so even some worthy candidates were left behind.

We have a new system to select the victor for 2022: a voting triumvirate of the community at large, our staff, and our subscribers. Over the next week, we’re inviting you, the Ultiworld readers, to vote for your favorite of the finalists selected. It’ll be best of three in those categories to decide the winner.

Check out all of the nominees and vote below, then check back to see which clips advance for another opportunity to participate. The final round of voting starts now and closes on February 7 at noon Eastern.


Final: Kimura vs. Mickle

What wonderful juxtaposition we have here: forehand vs. backhand. The “two-throws-in-the-bracket” vs. underdog. American vs. Canadian. In reality, these gorgeous deep throws have more in common than distinct from one another, taking place at the same tournament, in the same round of play, launched by world class throwers. Each displays that delicious mix of force and finesse. But there can only be one winner.
