HONG KONG - June 4: Dragon Boat teams participate in a race at Hong Kong's Aberdeen Harbour on June 4, 2003 in Hong Kong. Dragon boats compete against each other every June in remembrance of a famous Chinese poet and hero Qu Yuan, who drowned himself in the Mi Lo River as a protest against a corrupt government in the third century B.C. Legend says that in an attempt to rescue Qu Yuan, locals beat drums to scare fish away and threw dumplings into the sea to keep the fish from eating his body. (Photo by Christian Keenan/Getty Images
