On Sunday, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) fully recognized the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF), ultimate frisbee’s governing body, during its 128th session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. That means ultimate frisbee is eligible for IOC funding and can compete with other sports for inclusion in future Olympic games, Sports Illustrated‘s website and Reuters report.

“This is an incredible milestone in the 30 year history of WFDF and a further important step for our International Federation in the development of our sport worldwide,” WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch said in a statement. “Today’s decision will give a further boost to our efforts to increasing the presence of Flying Disc sports in all countries and on all continents.”
