  • Description

    SCOTSMEN FROM THE HIGHLANDS, THE LOWLANDS AND FROM OVERSEAS ARE MEETING THIS WEEKEND AT BRAEMAR IN SCOTLAND FOR A GATHERING OF THE CLANS AND FOR THE BRAEMAR HIGHLAND GAMES.

    STRENGTH PLAYS AN IMPORTANT PART IN THE SCOTTISH SPORTS - INCLUDING THROWING THE WEIGHT - AND THEREFORE MOST OF THE COMPETITORS ARE MEN OF ABOVE-AVERAGE PHYSIQUE.

    THE FIRST MAJOR TEST OF STRENGTH COMES IN THE WEIGHT THROWING COMPETITION. THE WEIGHT WEIGHS 28 POUNDS (12 K.G.).

    AN AMERICAN, BILL BANGERT, MAYOR OF CHAMP, NEAR ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, ENTERED NI THE TARTAN OF THE MACLEOD CLAN. HOWEVER, HE WAS NOT WATCH FOR ARTHUR ROWE, THE EVENTUAL GAMES CHAMPION. ROWE ALSO WENT ON TO DOMINATE THE HAMMER THROWING.

    OF THE TRADITIONS OF THE GATHERING IS THE VISIT OF THE ROYAL FAMILY FROM THEIR SCOTTISH CASTLE AT BALMORAL.
