Duplay's Intergalactic Champions (of beach sports)

A wise man once said "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball".  Armed with this wisdom, a former volleyball player, and a guy with a cannon for an arm that used to play college baseball, I managed to make the most of my Saturday afternoon.

Held at Nasimi Beach at the Atlantis under the hot Dubai sun, Duplay's Beach Championship's consisted of 16 teams, and 4 sports: Volleyball, Tug of War, Dodgeball, and Flip-Cup (yes, flip cup - but you could play with soda if you wanted).  After 4 grueling hours (and one-too-many tugs of war), it was down to our best dodgeballer, Marley (he's the one too tired to do anything but smile in the pic above), and theirs.  A quick pump fake, and bam - immortality!

Big ups to our team captain, Brooke (bottom right) for organizing, supplying the team jersey's, and being the all-important guy at the end of the line with the tug-of-war-rope wrapped around his waist.

Yeah! We didn't really believe you were just vegging on the sofa while Katie was in the US.
