Here is the official list of the Professional World Records according to the IHGF, the International Highland Games Federation.

It has been updated by the blog after Dan Mc KIM (photo) broke his two world records last June at the Utah Highland Games .

The new record-holder for both light and heavy hammer will be one of the Heavies to watch during the World Championships.

Breaking records: another challenge

The blog also gives you all the Bressuire records.

With such a line-up, most of them should be broken.

This will be another interesting challenge during this competition.

Can't wait to watch these World Championships on June 13 and 14!

Record-breakers: Hey, guys, HOW MANY CAN YOU BREAK next June?

marque mondeIt will be exceptionnal if a World record is broken during the Championship in Bressuire.

But who knows?

That would be a great opportunity for Bressuire to make history...

Up for grabs

But there is no doubt about it: most of the Bressuire records will be hammered.

With such high-flyiers, it can't be otherwise.

And yet, all the record-holders in Bressuire are international references or even former world Champions

They all belong to the international Highland Games crème de la crème.

They are all ready to throw further away...

And all these Bressuire records are up for grabs!

Now, throwers, it's up to you...

HOW MANY WILL YOU BREAK? Let's know in the "Commentary" at the bottom of the page
