The team, which is set to play the World Championship in the first week of August, would be led by 16-year-old Gurumurthy Anbalagan, who has been part of the Indian Ultimate team for the past three years.

Though Gurumurthy is just 16-years-old, he would be representing India at the World Championship for the second time. He was also part of India’s U-23 team which qualified last year.

Talking about his passion, Gurumurthy said he got into the sport after he saw a bunch of people throwing a “disc.”
