The Heavies

Another shot from Ballater Games Day.

There are a number of events which fascinate me. The heavy competitions are quite amazing. The size of the participants is always something to behold, and the clothing worn is fascinating too - especially the boots with massive blades on the toes, which seem to be flexible.

I also love to watch the dancers and the hill running event.

Here we see K Randalls, one of the Glenfiddich sponsored heavies, throwing the hammer.
Fantastic sight! I love these games. Must get to see one live sometime. Absolutely loving those socks!

@casablanca They look like All Blacks rugby socks. Maybe they are!

I guess he is swinging a heavy hammer? Good capture. I can certainly see why they have netting to protect the onlookers.

I've been to Highland Games once or twice and always find them fascinating. My husband (pre- me) tossed the caber a few times. Hate I never saw that.
