The Chinese rowers safely bagged the women's quadruple sculls gold with a world record of six minutes and 05.13 seconds at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on July 28. 

Chen Yunxia, Zhang Ling, Lyu Yang, and Cui Xiaotong established a convincing lead before the final 500m and refreshed its Olympic best time set on home soil at the 2008 games.

The national canoeing training center is located in Hangzhou's Chun'an County, famous for its stunning landscapes of Thousand Island Lake. 

Shilin town in Chun'an County is another canoeing-themed town, where ten provincial canoeing teams and city canoeing teams, and three teams from other countries set winter training centers there.
