Strength From The Highlands: Weight Over Bar

Posted on Thursday, November 9th, 2017 by John Wood
Another great even in the Highland Games is the “Weight Over Bar.” Just like it sounds, a 56 pound weight is tossed as high as possible with a “good” throw clearing the crossbar above. Shown here is Paul Bidwell, successfully clearing 16 feet on his third attempt at the 10th annual Delaware Highland Games in Fair Hill, MD on June 5th, 1971 (a new World Record at the time.)
