Dragon Boat Racing is an ancient Chinese sport, started in Hong Kong as an International Championship in the early 90's and spread around the world. In ancient China, devoted followers of Chu Yuan, learning of his death, beat their paddles on the water and banged drums and gongs to frighten away the fish from Chu Yuan's body in the Mi Lo River. Athletes all over the world still meet to commemorate Yuan's sacrifice for honor and justice. The sport has grown into an international competitive event, with Dragon Boat Races and festivals held around the globe from Hong Kong to Sydney and San Francisco to London.
