In Bressuire just like everywhere in the World, Highland Games are fun under the sun.

1506-130012_HG2015But they are not necessarily a pain under the rain.

1506-142652_HG2015That was the case in Bressuire for the IHGF Worlds

Everybody was great on Saturday when the sun was shining

But athletes, spectators and volunteers were even greater on Sunday in spite of the apocalyptic weather.

1506-141430_HG2015But even if it was raining cats and dogs, they were all hammers and tongs

1506-142585_HG2015Congrats to all the actors of these exceptional Games: throwers, judges, organisers, spectators, dancers, pipers.

They made these Highland Games a great event and it was even more exceptional under the rain
