Dragon Boating has its roots in Chinese tradition and culture. The event is said to have originated millennia ago, when from all over China the first race was organized to commemorate the death of a righteous poet.
Dragon boating is a relatively new to the western world sport, but it has a bright future. It is now the fastest growing water sport, and it has very good chances of becoming an Olympic Sport soon. It is a recreational activity that anyone can take up; one can compete at different levels according to their goals or physical fitness.
Anyone can do it, either simply for fun, or with more serious goals in mind. Young people, older people, men women, stronger, weaker people, dragon boating is for everyone! That’s what makes the sport so special.
