Dragonboating - Not an Olympic Sport?
25 May 2008 -
As the Olympic Torch began its journey around the world, the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Association
flag was seen on the boat carrying Hong Kong swimmer Sze Hang-Yu. The IDBF was pleased to see that this
traditional Chinese sport, which came to the West via Hong Kong, was so visibly present in connection with
the Olympic Games.
Criticism of Chinese politics aside, the EDBF would like to wish the individual athletes who will take part
in the upcoming Olympic Games success in their endeavors and congratulations to the HKDBA who scored this
PR coup for the dragon boat sport.
