Frisbee fans are fizzing.

The International Olympic Committee has recognised disc-based sports, opening the door for ultimate frisbee and frisbee golf to one day feature in the Olympic Games.

The World Flying Disc Federation is reported to be "honoured and humbled" by the IOC's decision.

The Executive Officer of New Zealand Ultimate, Iain Stewart, told This Way Up's Simon Morton that he's stoked too.
