Photos and Videos: FDS at the 2014 Singapore National Games (1-Nov-2014)

The Filipino Dragons (Singapore) (FDS) participated as guests today at the 2014 Singapore National Games. It was great to watch them in action! I took some photos of FDS (and other teams). You can see some videos I took at the end of the photo collection.

After three dragon boat sessions, I’m in love with that sensation on the boat.

I was keen on watching the event today because I wanted to observe proper form while paddling.

This is the first time I saw them use a different dragon boat (DBS). FDS has it’s own boats.

I was awestruck by their energy. Makes me want to train real hard.

This group (I’ve tried researching their logo on the cap) were a fun and happy bunch. I loved their energy!

I am still studying how to get the proper A-form. Jen, the team captain (in the pink hat), has been our trainer.
