"For people in Miluo, boat racing during the festival is in our blood, and we are proof that regardless of age or gender, anyone can participate and enjoy team sports," she said.

One of the most popular stories of the festival's origins is that of Qu Yuan, an exiled poet and politician during the Warring States period (475-221BC). Upon hearing his state, Chu, had fallen, he committed suicide by drowning himself in the Miluo River.
