UAE-based dragon boat squad Dubai Diggers sealed glory in the 200m and 500m premier mixed races at the 8th International Dragon Boat Federation Club Crew World Championships in Hong Kong.

The UAE contingent – represented by a record four crews – faced stiff competition from around 180 Dragon Boat Club Crews and over 4,700 racers from the likes of the UK, USA, Australia, Germany and mainland China.

Dubai Diggers are the first ever UAE team to clinch gold at such an event.

Jason Mackenzie, of the UAE Dragon Boat Association, said: "To have achieved this fantastic result against such formidable competition is a real tribute to the training and dedication of all the crew members. "It was also a real highlight for the team to compete in Hong Kong - the city's reputation for holding world-class, international sports events is well deserved.” – Sport 360°
