In the past two days, Qingdao has a warm wind and a clear sky, providing satisfactory conditions for the participants in the 2019 East sail Cup International canoeing Federation World Rowing Championships. The beautiful Fushan Bay, Taiping Bay, the water surface and the hundred boards are competing for the current, which provides a wonderful fashion sports feast for the citizens and tourists who come to watch the game specially.

The citizens are enthusiastic and the paddle sport gains new fans

Pan Weiyin, who is nearly 80 years old, has always paid close attention to Qingdao's sports. I heard that there is a world rowboard championship in the Olympic Sailing Center in recent days, so I came here to watch it. Pan said,"I didn't know there was such a project before. Now I have a world-class competition at my home. I think it's very interesting!" Mr. Pan also said that he would like to let his grandson know and experience the paddle movement if he has the chance.

Representing sunshine, fashion and health, paddle sport has been loved by more and more young people recently. Xia Jinguang, a student of leisure sports, is a volunteer of the world rowing championship of the East sail International canoeing Federation. He has experienced sailing for the first time."The first feeling is that it's fun and exciting. Standing on the rowing board and rowing against the waves is also very handsome!" He thinks the paddle board is not the same as the water project he has tried before. If he has the chance, he also wants to play the paddle board.

Xiao Sun, a security guard on duty at the North award platform of the Olympic Sailing Center, pays close attention to the event situation while working hard. He thought that the view of paddle sport was very high, and it seemed very interesting."I hope more and more people will pay attention to this paddle sport, and more people will come to Qingdao to participate in the competition!" According to the insiders, paddleboard is the fastest growing sport in the past decade. In China, paddleboard has also been popularized rapidly in the past two or three years. In the background that surfing has become a formal event of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, the increasingly popular paddleboard also has the opportunity to enter the Olympic palace in the near future.

After 40 days of training, the Chinese team participated for the first time and accumulated valuable experience

As a new type of water sports, paddleboard has developed rapidly in China in recent years, but compared with the development of foreign countries in the past two or three decades, it is still relatively immature, but the process of catching up with Chinese players is not slow. In the first world rowboard Championships, Chinese players performed well, winning 2 gold, 5 silver and 8 bronze medals and 15 medals in total.

The Chinese national team sent 12 players, 6 men and 6 women, aged 16 to 18. It is worth mentioning that in order to participate in this competition, this is the first time for the national team to form a team. The players have only trained in the third bathing beach for 40 days. Many players come from the South and inland. After the competition, they said with a smile,"it was the first time they came to the sea for training. The first feeling was that the sea was very salty!" The coach said that every player worked hard and achieved satisfactory results. Although he won only one gold medal, he also accumulated experience for the national team and every player.

At present, there are many folk fans of paddle sport, many of them have signed up for the mass competition."It's a great honor for us paddle fans to participate in world-class competitions at home and compete with the world's top players." Zhao Yong was deeply attracted when he saw the paddle sport for the first time when he brushed the circle of friends. He was excited to hear that Qingdao is going to hold the world paddle championship. As a kayak player, Zhao Yong occasionally had a chance to play on the paddleboard, and his love for it was irremediable. Paddle is close to rowing, but because it is wider, it is also the easiest to learn and the most suitable for popularization.

Jia chuantao, coach of China's national paddle training team, said,"I hope the new sport of paddle can develop better and faster, and more and more people will participate in this sport!"
