IMG_5845After Jimmy VAN DE WALLE, here comes the Dutchman Pieter Karst BOUMA.

Everybody remembers that last year, even if he only finished fourth in the teamed competition, he was the best thrower in the individual competition. (photo: Highland Games, France)

2012: n°1 in Bressuire, n°2 in Luzarches

He also sent the caber flying high to become the "tossing the caber" European champion in Bressuire.

He also finished second at the 2012 Luzarches Highland Games in September. Number 1 was Bruce AITKEN and number 3 was ... Jimmy Van de WALLE.

And, of course, for the Bressuire Highland Games on June 8 and 9, there are more throwers to come...

Once more, the competition will be awesome in Bressuire.
 
And Francis BREBNER, the president of the international federation, is already looking forward to these European Championship.
