The Canadian team finished third by winning the bronze medal against Italy, 15-13, 15 to 12.

From defense to offense

After two losses in the preliminary round, the Canadian team reviewed its strategy. So Emma found herself in a more offensive role and it paid off.

We had a hard time against so many teams, because they played differently which was more strategic. We changed our offensive and defensive lines […]They noticed that I excelled on the fast side so they made me play more offensively “, she explained. In just three matches, Emma Journes scored 10 goals and three assists with a total of 13 points, the best performance in the playoffs.

These two achievements are worth mentioning due to the athlete’s short career in the Ultimate. The 17-year-old started the sport less than two years ago while working at the Ville de Mont-Tremblant day camp.

“I surprised myself. I am a little new to this, so we (me and my family) were all surprised by this result.”
– Emma Ornes

The Mont-Tremblant native wishes to continue playing Ultimate and aims to participate in the World U24 Championship (U24).
