Fast and furious, T-Rex is a force to be reckoned with! As far as dragons go, T-Rex embodies the spirit of the sport; he gives it his all and is passionate while still being a good sportsman… or is that a good sportslizard?
T-Rex may seem like a bit of an odd name for a dragon boat mascot, however he isn’t actually named after the dinosaur (although that works too). T-Rex is actually an acronym of the name of a highly respected individual within the sport of dragon boating in WA. The name was suggested by a paddler because they noted this individual is extremely dedicated to the ongoing development and improvement of the sport both within the State and nationally, and he has done an immense amount of work with juniors and high-performance crews.
It was agreed that it was a great name for our mascot and we hope T-Rex reminds each of us to work hard, support each other and strive to bring out the best in every paddler at the 2015 Australian Championships! Paddles up!
