Mallard's Team of the Week —Kootenay Rhythm Dragons
Talk about success on the water.
The Kootenay Rhythm Dragons Club celebrated its tenth anniversary in style by expanding the team while at the same cooking with the experienced clubs during competitive dragon boat festivals in Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton.
Thanks in part to the teaching of a new stroke by Brad Hara of Toronto Paddlecore, the competitive teams have posted best ever results and for the first time having two competitive teams finish first and second at the Penticton festival.
The success of the season exemplifies the Rhythm Dragons Club mission statement: Empowerment, Health and Well Being for all women.
This has been accomplished with courage, tenacity, hard work, dedication, fun and laughter by an amazing group of women.
Mallard’s Source for sports would like to honour the Kootenay Rhythm Dragons for their tenacity by naming the club Team of the Week.
