The 2nd Uganda Dragon Boat Race was held on Lake Victoria on June 16. The dragon boat team from Jianghan University (JHUN), the defending champion and the only team from China, successfully retained the crown after two rounds of competition. On July 3, the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries sent a letter to the Foreign Affairs Office of the Wuhan Municipal Government and Jianghan University to congratulate them for the victory and to express their gratitude for the work that they have done to promote cultural exchanges between China and Uganda.

Established in 2012, the JHUN Dragon Boat Team ranked third in the China Dragon Boat Tournament. This year the JHUN team won the championship again in Entebbe, Uganda, a sister city of Wuhan. The head of the China-Africa Friendship Association of Uganda said that the JHUN boat was "the fastest boat in Africa." He Yabin, the coach of the JHUN team, said the local people's carnival ran from the morning until the evening at the competition site.
