Greg, the Marketing & Communications Officer of the UBC Thunderbirds Dragon Boat Sport Club, moved to Vancouver from Singapore in 2013 and transferred to UBC from Columbia College in his 3rd year, pursuing his specialization in Organizational Behaviour & Human Resources in the Faculty of Commerce.

Greg first joined UBC Thunder in October 2015. Before that, he paddled recreationally with Columbia College CC Riders and DragonZone Blazing Paddles. With the encouragement of James Liu and Olivia Chan, coaches of DragonZone Blazing Paddles, along with the support of his friends and teammates, Greg decided to take the step up and paddle competitively.

"I've only been paddling competitively for a little more than a year and it already feels like it has played such a big role in my life. Dragon Boat is a sport that truly represents team work. I have been involved in many sports, but I have never felt anything like this one." - Gregory Goana
