Flyball World Championships Saturday allows average teams to upset top teams

The Cynosport World Flyball Championships is anyone's race: this year's format allows teams with slower times to compete against the fastest teams in the world.

Friday's tournament provided seed times for tomorrow's Cynosport World Flyball Championships. Based on Friday's times, the teams will be divided into brackets with a variety of division times in it. The top three teams from each bracket will go on to Sunday's finals. This format allows for each team to race side-by-side with world-record-holding teams and have an opportunity to make the finals on Sunday.

The atmosphere heading into was upbeat. "People are very positive, very excited because we changed the format this year going into the championships tomorrow. This year the teams are broken up into broad-based brackets which allows some of the slower teams to race against the fastest teams in the world... and sometimes they cream the famous teams and go home with bragging rights," says Lee Heighton, chairman of the North American Flyball Association's board.
