Crew Boat to Dragon Boat
February 9, 2019
Some exciting changes for me in regards to rowing. I wanted to try something new that still involved being on the water, so I now paddle in a dragon. I have been training during the winter with Philadelphia Dragon Boat Association and have accepted their invitation to continue training and soon to be competing with them.
Now some really exciting news! I recently found out that I made the final cut for Team USA U18 Dragon Boat and will be flying out to LA on 2/15 for the final boat selection camp.
It would be an honor to make the team and represent Team USA in Pattaya, Thailand for Worlds.
