Things got heated at the Chinese City Games this past Sunday when a fight broke out between two canoeing teams.

From China Daily:

A Guangzhou quartet intentionally rammed its boat to a Nanchang team which had once paddled in Guangzhou''s lane during the 2,000-meter race. The Nanchang foursome fought back with paddles, cutting the face of Guangzhou kayaker Liao Zhensheng.

Liao''s face was covered with blood when he was rushed to the hospital.
