Amazing Dog Steals Show And Sets World Record For Frisbee Catch
The Orlando Apollos won their third straight game against the visiting Memphis Express at the start of the inaugural Alliance of American Football season, but a four-legged athlete named Eurie stole the show when he set a world record for frisbee catching at a live sporting event.
Gary Duke is the director of the Central Florida Disc Dogs Club. He works with the Halftime Dogs Flying Disc Show dogs and took a few tosses to Eurie before the winning catch was made during halftime. According to his Instagram page, Eurie is a 2-year-old Greyhound/Malinois/Pit Bull mix
A crowd of over 20,000 watched Eurie catch a frisbee thrown 83 yeards, and erupted in applause when he did so.
Duke says that Eurie did the hard work of running and catching, because after he threw it, he became a spectator waiting and watching like everyone else!
The pair has also set a world record of 122.5 yeards in a long-distance competition against other teams.
What a rush that was, can’t wait to see the high res video from the Apollo’s crew! That place erupted when Eurie snagged…
Though the catch wasn’t the record for the longest ever (that belongs to a toss from a man in 2012 and caught by a dog at 134 yards), Guinness World Records confirmed that for a live sporting event it was not just impressive but record-setting.
Indeed. I get winded just thinking about running like that (much less even being able to throw that far!) and they make it look like it’s second nature!
Congratulations Eurie! You’re a very good (and talented!) boy!
