There is a quite a of tradition of strongman-Highland Games crossover. Here's Iceland's Andreas Gudmundsson competing in Callander, Scotland in 1994, in a weekend that had both the European Musclepower Championships and Highland Games World Championships on the same field. That weekend, four-time World's Strongest Man winner Magnus Ver Magnusson took a break from strongman and was competing in the Highland Games World Championships, where he took third place. Incidentally, that's Jim Pollock, also of World's Strongest Man fame, keeping a sharp eye on things as Andreas unloads on the weight for height. For more details on that historic weekend, be sure to read the October 1994 issue of MILO®. IronMind® | Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D. photo.


"It will be a mix of strongman and Highland Games," Satterfield said. "In a six-event contest, there will be three of the events that are strongman and three that are Highland Games. We will offer four-, six- and eight-event contests," Satterfield said. "We currently have four state chairs with more being finalized and are working with some Pro strongmen and Highland Games throwers."
