To carry out Nationwide Fitness Rules and enhance the development of dragon boat sports in Yunnan, the 2017 “Colorful Yunnan· Beautiful Dehong” dragon boat race was held in the Kongquehu Lake from November 23 to 27. It was sponsored by Social Sports Guiding Center of Yunnan and undertaken by Social sports Guiding Center of Dehong.
Dehong hosts a magnificent dragon boat race during the Water Splashing Festival every year. In recent years, attracted by the better conditions of winter training in Dehong, more and more winter races have been held in Dehong. And this is the first province-level dragon boat race undertaken by Dehong. More than ten teams attended the race, and Myanmar teams were also invited.
Taking the race as an opportunity, a training class for dragon boat was held from November 20 to 23 in Dehong Sports Center. About 80 backbones from Dehong and other states in Yunnan attended the class. The training greatly promoted the development of aquatic sports and propelled the inheritance of traditional sports.
