These pictures are for the heavy and light weight for distances. If you look closely in the last two photos you can see the weight being launched in the air!
This event is throwing the weight three times by spinning the body and releasing the weight without crossing the trig. The heavy weight is 42 pounds and the light weight is 28 pounds for my husband age group. I can't pick up either without a bit of trouble!!!
The last highland games, this season that my husband is going to, is in October. He has a month to train and get ready. He is doing very well for his first year and in the top 80 in the nation for his age group. The man he trains with is at the world event this weekend and we are looking forward to hearing how he does.
