101No wonder Lukasz WENTA from Poland, just like his brother Seb WENTA, is a big fish in the world of professionnal Highland Games.

And 27 years after the film "a fish called Wanda" was released, the IHGF is ready to announce an exceptionnal show in Bressuire featuring two brothers:

"Two fish called Wenta"

The readers of the blog already know Sebastian. It's time now  for them to discover Lucasz.

Caber and fishing-rod

In the short message he sent to the blogger, he announces that fishing is one of his hobbies.

But we can see on the photo he can really make a difference between a fishing rod and a caber.

What else is essential for Lucasz?

Sport, of course.

Lucasz, like most throwers in these Worlds, comes from Track and Field where his favorite events were shot-putting and discus-throwing

"My ambitions for the  world championships is to be in the first 3 on the podium".

This is what Lucasz wants and it seems quite realistic if we analyse his personnal bests.

WENTA LucaszFor the big fish from Poland, don't expect him to say on June 13, 14 he has no other fish to fry.

And we can be sure that "Two fish called Wenta on the podium" would be a fantastic blockbuster in Poland.

With the two Wentas in Pole position, of course!

But we can imagine the other big fish in Bressuire want to see a different kind of film.

Book your tickets for the big show on June 13, 14!

It will be a cliffhanger...
