Myanmar traditional boat crew heads into training camp for int’l competitions

Myanmar traditional boat team is currently taking in the training camp ahead of the international boat races and tournaments across Asia, said officials from Myanmar Rowing and Canoeing Federation.
Although the 2021 SEA Games, hosted by Vietnam, do not include traditional boat races, the Myanmar Rowing Federation is training in preparation for next year’s 2023 Cambodia SEA Games, including international competitions.
The Myanmar Traditional Boat Team has been retraining for more than a year since the 2019 SEA Games and over 30 rowers are participating in the boat team.
The Myanmar Traditional Boat Team will compete in the Asian Beach Games next year. The Myanmar team will also take part in other international events, including the Asian Games, and World Dragon Boat Race in November this year.
The detail fixtures, venues and further confirmations of the international boat race and tourneys will be announced later based on the pandemic circumstances.
The Myanmar team is comprised with newcomers plus veteran rowers. The team Myanmar has won one gold medal, one silver medal and two bronze medals in the 2019 South-East Asian Games in the Philippines. —Ko Nyi Lay/ GNLM
