2017 Long Beach Dragon Boat Festival
The Los Angeles Pink Dragons won a gold medal at the 2017 Long Beach Dragon Festival last Saturday in the All Female Cancer division. Competition was fierce all day. While we sadly did not defend our gold medal from last year’s Breast Cancer Survivor division, it was exhilarating to race our final race of the day well and finish strong (beating the same team who got gold in our earlier BC final). We won by 3 tenths of a second! And our competitors we beat by that slim margin were very happy for us…cheering and congratulating us on our best race of the day before we were even off the water. Such sisterhood and great sportsmanship amongst competitive “foes.” We celebrate each other’s victories in life…both on and off the water.
