The athletic competition at the provincial Highland Gathering is like an Ironman, except in kilts.
Whether participating as a hobbyist or treating the Western Canadian Heavy Events as a stepping stone to nationals, the province's most athletic Scotsmen gathered in Regina on Sunday.
Events like the caber toss, hammer throw, and 28-lb stone throwing often elicit and hearty grunt as athletes show their grit.
Competitor Marc Morin considers the events to be much like track and field.
