Objective: To toss the large heavy hammer the farthest.
They made it looks so easy as they threw the large hammer across the field.
Weight Over the Bar
Objective: To throw a weight over one's head and clear the highest height.
This event made me nervous as they threw it up over their heads. One misjudge could lead to disaster.

They were throwing these weights like they weighed nothing. It was crazy!
Objective: To toss the heavy weight the farthest.
This event was the closest to the American's track and field version of shot put.
Objective: To toss the pole the farthest, but it must flip at least one time.
I thought this was the most entertaining event at the games. It's very impressive to see how them lift these huge poles and throw them.
Along with the interesting sporting games there are also other music and dance competition too. It was a great fun experience attending the Brodick Highland games.
