World Highland Games-2013. Glasgow

Scotland, Glasgow, 2013 August

It was a great festival.
The festival took a lot of interesting events: the World Championship Highland Games, the World Championship of the national Scottish music, Scotland Fair of National Arts and more.
One of the main organizers of the festival is the famous Douglas Edmunds and his awesome wife Linda.
Douglas is the father of the strongman sport in the World.

World Highland Woman Championship - 2013

This word truly means a lot…
It’s was always interesting for men - who is the strongest, fastest, toughest?
This interest of competitors and public is the base of sport.
An initiative of restarting the Olympics in 1896 year gave a strong impetus to development of modern sport.
Nowadays sport is a huge industry. Its arsenal contains all necessary attributes of a first-class show: athletes, coaches, stadiums, swimming pools, all types of infrastructure and equipment… and thousands of so-called managers that firmly holds their grips on sport business and give a hard treatment to anybody who dares to disturb their financial schemes.
Millions of dollars that circulate in the sport industry every year stimulate not only new records, but also constant widening of sports variety.
But let’s discuss financial issues another time.
Today it would be wiser to talk about new sports. To be precise, about one particular new sport - STRONGMAN COMPETITIONS.
In the faraway seventies of the XX century in faraway Scotland the strongman named Douglas Edmunds
got an idea. He decided to find a civilized way to answer the traditional and interesting for all the peoples question: who is the strongest man in the world?
To make this idea a reality Douglas registered International Federation of Strongest Athletes (IFSA).
From the very beginning this Federation had its Statute, its Rules and other formal attributes of a modern sports federation. When the question of specific exercises and rules of their completing arose, Federation turned to basic situations of everyday life - situations, when people got to carry, lift, drag and throw some common things. But the weight of these common things was increased to match the level of the true champions. Winners in every exercise were sportsmen that managed to show best results: weight, time, distance, height and number of repeats - standard objective criteria of modern sports. That should cause all the concerns about judges’ unbiassment to disappear.
You may ask - oh, come on, why do you think that variety of other power sports cannot determine the strongest man?
The answer is obvious. No modern power sport can uncover the true variety of a sportsman’s force capabilities as fully as strongman sports do. To win the extraordinary prestigious title of World’s Strongest Man a person must possess a unique combination of absolute strength, velocity strength, static strength, dynamic strength, physical endurance, dexterity and coordination of movements - and he must show them in different exercises, numbers of which had surpassed 50 long ago.
It means that for successful results on competition athlete must be splendidly prepared in all the above mentioned aspects.
And what it means to be “splendidly prepared” in strongman sports?
From the first glance, fortune favors those, who have:
- Excellent anthropometrics;
- Perfect health;
- Genetically imprinted strength;
- A decent gym with all the necessary for the strongmen trainings equipment nearby;
- Enough resources to provide himself with additional equipment, special food and medicines;
- (sadly, not all appreciate this) a trainer truly interested in this sportsman.
If you think so - you’re right.
