The Philippine Dragon Boat team after an impressive showing at the first-ever International Dragon Boat Federation Dragon Boat World Cup are now seated in the number two spot from its previous ranking of fifth place in the World’s best rankings.

The Filipino paddlers beat in the world ranking powerhouse teams like the US, Australia, Canada, Germany, Russia and Great Britain.

PDBF President Marcia Cristobal said that the big win of the RP Dragon Boat Team in Macau wherein they won the Gold and two Silver medals raised the morale of the team and gave them inspiration to aim for the gold in the World Cup.

The PDBF team is composed of paddlers coming from the Philippine Air force, Philippine Navy and Philippine Coastguard.
