Dragon boater's on-land effort

Wednesday, March 10, 2021

Carlie, the Blades immediate past president, is not satisfied with being a World Champion dragon boater.

During the last few months she has been training hard at Indoor Rowing. The World Championships were held virtually this year because of Covid-19. Athletes from over 60 countries competed in gyms, living rooms, bedrooms, and backyards.

Carlie set up her equipment in the backyard shed, and needed to make sure the video was working, hope that the wifi wouldn’t drop out, and be ready to manage the different time zones for the finals, as racing started on European time.

On Saturday evening she won a bronze medal in her division!

What a champion!  Cockburn Dragon Boat Club salutes your achievement, commitment and enthusiasm!
