Scottish heavy athletics owe their roots to the Highland warriors who would keep in shape between battles by competing amongst themselves with everyday implements. A stone, a blacksmith’s hammer, a tree trunk (caber) became tools for building strength for battle.

Many people think that the male and female athletes select the events in which they compete, but heavy throwers must compete in ALL the events offered in a competition, which can vary from seven to nine different throwing events. The competition typically takes all day long to complete with athletes moving from one throwing area to another.
