Dragon Race - Podebrady
Do not miss the photo report from a unique event, which is traditionally held in Poděbrady.
Below is an excerpt from the Poděbrady centre blog. You can find the whole article and photos here.
"As every year, the ILPS students participated in the Dragon Boat Race "PODĚBRADSKÉ DRAČÍ SRDCE" (Poděbrady Dragon's Heart) for a Poděbrady challenge cup, which was held on 25 May 2019 at the Poděbrady lake. A twenty-member crew of students from all over the world trained well to compete with six other experienced racing teams. Each crew completed three 200-metre start races along the bank, and a 1000-metre race in which the ships circle the island in the middle of the lake.
The ILPS Poděbrady team took a beautiful 7th place in the 200m race as well as in the final 1000m race, and for their perseverance they earned a special reward – a Cup for the most likeable crew in the Dragon Race."
We are very happy that every year the students participate in large numbers!
