CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Dragon Boat Charleston's team of breast cancer survivors is one of the top three paddling teams in the world. 

The Paddles & Pearls team of 26 breast cancer survivors won two medals at the International Dragon Boat Federation's Club Crew World Championships in Adelaide, Australia. The team won a silver medal in the 500 meter race and won the bronze in the 200 meter sprint. 

Dragon Boat Charleston's team has trained together for a year to prepare. The team won the national championship last summer to earn a berth in the World Championships.
