    Dragon Boat Paddlers

    In one of my articles about Dragon Boat Festival, http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1016861, I saw again the Dragon Boat Festival but I want to show this time their paddles and their creative movement in paddling.

    The recent Dragon Boat Festival (March 2, 2014), the purpose of the event is for the rehabilitation of Pasig River (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rehabilitation_of_the_Pasig_River)
    . The Dragon Boat team just received trophies instead of cash. The teams purpose is to raise funds for the benefit of Pasig River.

    The article features the paddles of the Dragon Boat paddlers, how they handle their paddles and in the beginning going to the starting line(it shows how creative they are when they paddle). Even during the actual competition, they show they are synchronise in their paddling.

    In Dragon Boat Festival, the paddlers should be synchronize with their paddling to win the competition. Irregardless what is the color and materials made of their paddles. The purpose of the team is the enjoyment of being part of the event.
