    World's Strongest Logger

    Was held last weekend in Anderson California. My son was invited to compete and I was invited to shoot the events. The venue and weather really gave me fits especially since I haven't shot a big (or little) event in over a year. While not technically a Highlands game many of the events were from the games and kilts were for the most part required.

    The deadlift medley

    One deadlift, one farmers carry lift and then as many reps as possible on the apparatus deadlift. Again I'm sorry I don't know the women's weight
