Philippine Dragon Boat Team - Dragon Warriors are the Competition’s Defending World Champion with 5 GOLDS and 2 SILVERS

The Philippine Dragon Boat team, also known as the “Dragon Warriors”, is a composite team of athletes from the Philippine Army, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard with 5 GOLDS and 2 SILVERS.

Currently, the Dragon Warriors are the competition’s defending world champion.

I have seen through a local TV show how this team fights for a budget and support from our government. Sadly, as claimed, they get nil support from our government. Gladly, with the help of some of our kababayans here and abroad, they have had been able to collect all what they need to join the world title dragon boat race.
