On Saturday the 11th of July 2015 during the game France against Switzerland at a Masters preparation tournament in Basel, Sébastien Martineau called Tinmar suddenly and without any contact with another player collapsed on the field. Although professional help was there right away and a lot of unconditional love and support from the whole Ultimate Community, Sébastien deceased later in the hospital in Basel.
Games were stopped on Saturday and players and coaches talked about what the best way is, to handle this tragic situation. Together we decided to play the remaining games on Sunday. We were and still are convinced that this was the best way to honour Sébastien as well as support our friends from the French Master Team to help them handle this incredibly sad situation.
We all truly love the game of Ultimate and the friendship that goes along with it. The best way to share this love is by playing the game and being there for each other.
Our thoughts and love go out to Sébastian, his family and friends and to the whole French Ultimate Community.
