A Heartbreaker in Hungary

Philippines placed fourth on its 2 attempts for a podium finish in the 11th IDBF Dragon Boat World Championships in Szegred, Hungary yesterday.

In the standard premiere 1000m mixed, the Philippine Dragon Warriors missed the bronze by a razor thin .12 sec, bowing to eventual winners: USA, Canada and China.

In the most thrilling race of the day, the standard premiere 1000m open, the Philippines lost the podium by an even closer .1 sec! Germany, Czech Republic and USA took the top posts in this hotly contested race that saw all 6 finalists (including Canada and China) in the thick of the fight until the very end.

The Philippines’ quest follows a 7th and 8th place finish in the two 2000m events they competed in yesterday. The campaign continues today with races in the 500m distance categories.
