Auroras put to the test

11 Feb 2014

Auroras put to the test Image

Australia’s national Dragon Boat team, the Auroras, was put through its paces in Docklands last month.

The team, comprising 60 paddlers from around Australia, was in Docklands for a four-day training camp over the Australia Day long weekend.

The Australian team includes 17 members of local Docklands teams,

Melbourne Flames coach Serghei Cusca is also involved with the national team, continuing his role as coach.

Last month’s training camp in Docklands  saw the paddlers spend plenty of time out on the water.

According to Australian Dragon Boat Federation president and Auroras team member Kel Watt, the training camp had been tough.

According to Mr Watt, team members spent up to seven hours on the water each day, completed fitness tests on land and analysed their performance and technique through video feedback sessions.

The Auroras will head to China later this year to compete in the Asian Championships in Macau from May 30 to June 1 and at the International Dragon Boat Federation World Cup in Fuzhou on June 11 and 12.
