317 athletes from all over Ukraine fought for the winner's cup. For the first time this year, among 20 teams, guests from Moldova also tested their strengths.
The victory went to the Kharkiv SMK team. Athletes quickly covered two distances - 400 m and 2 km. The second place was taken by the Kiev team, the third - by the team from Moldova.
Dragon Boat is already two thousand years old. In China, racing in a ten-meter canoe with the head and tail of a dragon was dedicated to a rich harvest and victory over the dark forces. Nowadays Ukrainian teams often take prizes in the world competitions.
