Local dragon boat coach gets nod to mentor national team


WATCH: Victoria’s Tom Arnold was recently appointed as the program director for the Senior B National dragon boat team, marking the first time ever that an island coach has been given such a position.

A decorated paddler himself, Arnold is looking to continue Canada’s strong showing on the world stage, and centralize the program here on the

island, bringing some of the best paddlers from across the country here to Victoria. Arnold says there’s a lot of work to be done between now and the 2019 World Championships, which take place in Hungary in just over 12 months time.
