Dragon boat racing is an ancient canoeing sport originating from an annual ethnic ritual over the past two thousand years throughout southern China, that later spread throughout southeastern Asia and recently all over the globe.

Although competition has taken place for more than two millennia as part of religious ceremonies and folk customs, dragon boat racing has more recently risen as a competitive international sport.

Table Tennis

Table Tennis, commonly known as “ping-pong,” is one of the most popular sports in the world, second only to soccer, according to www.usatt.org. This is owed to table tennis’s great variability, as one may play it as a relaxing, recreational game, or as an intense sport requiring athleticism, smarts (athletic chess?) and rigorous training. Perhaps this has distorted table tennis’s image to Americans as just a soft activity, but it has attracted attention all over the world as a sport anyone can play.
