Heavy Athletics

Scottish Heavyweight Athletics form the identifying activities at the Highland Games. These contests have their roots in the 10th century when Scottish King Malcolm Ceanmore first hosted competitions of strength and speed among his warriors and clansmen. The winners were given honorable positions as messengers and bodyguards.
