NSYSU’s International Teams triumphed in all three Tug-of-War categories; International Mix beat the 2nd place finisher HKUST Alumni Dragonboat Team by a whopping 15 seconds in both days to repeat the title. This year the International Team took home a grand total of 8 championships. Unfazed by strong competitors the Marines, Kaohsiung City Government Police Department, and Taiwan Liver Research Foundation Groundhogs, the Open Mix still finished an impressive 3rd in the final race.
