In this tournament, HUST sent out two teams, boys’ team as well as girls’ team, to respectively participated in the competition of professional men’s group and junior women’s group. This is the first time that both teams are sent to participate in national dragon boat competitions.

In team qualifying, Boys’ Team won first in 100-meter race, second in 200-meter race and first in 500-meter race. With a total score ranking of 14, they failed to get to the final.
