"Atlantic Rowing Challenge" is a great event in the ocean rowing world, known as the world's most arduous rowing event; starting from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Spain to Antigua in North America, the participating team will row 3,000 miles (about 5,000 kilometers), across the Atlantic Ocean . Kung Fu Cha-Cha is China's first team to participate in the Atlantic Rowing Challenge. Four female students of Kung Fu Cha-Cha are Chen Yuli, Li Xiaobing and Liang Mintian from Guangdong Province as well as Meng Yajie from Henan Province. They performed well and kept leading the women's teams. During their rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, the participating teams once encountered strong wind attacks and 6-meter high waves, two of which had to exit the race. However, the rowers of Kung Fu Cha-Cha broke through the predicament with their resolute hands, safely overcame the adverse sea conditions, and moved ahead days and nights to win the women's championship.
