Storyline


The 50th China Longzhou (Dragon Boat) Tournament went into its finals on Sunday in central Chinese city of Changsha.

Fifty teams, 1,130 athletes competed in the tournament, which produced its all 15 champions in Sunday's competition. Liaocheng University became the big winner in the youth category, winning all six programs. In the professional category, Jiujiang Shuangzheng and Nanchang Xiaolanhushan together won five out of the six champions.

"We've come a long way after 50 tournaments in eight or nine years, gradually building up a very professional tournament with standardized formats and rules, and live broadcast," said Wei Wei, a referee of the race.

"We've always been wanting to introduce China's traditional culture to the outside world with our dragon boat tournament, and to make this dragon boat race an international tournament in the future," said He Yi, secretary general of the China Dragon Boat Association.
