While just a few of their countrymen were looking, Filipino boat paddlers zipped through the 10th Dragon Boat World Championships to get their gold for the Philippines. Composed mostly of cash-strapped military men and women, the big-hearted paddlers won several golds and made us really proud even if they had difficult time getting financial support from the government. I do hope now that more sponsors will come forward to support them in their future undertaking.
Congratulations, Philippine Dragon Boat Team! You made us really proud!
