2017 Games a Great Success

The 2017 Games proved to be a great success with a crowd of nearly 3,000 watching some thrilling action by competitors from all over the world. The day was warm and bright with only two 10min showers throughout the afternoon. A fantastic field of 11 Heavyweight athletes from Scotland, England, Poland and Germany had a titanic battle over 9 events. England’s Scott Rider retained the Halkirk Heavyweight Championship beating the SHGA World Champion Luckasz Wenta, amongst others. A total of 15 cyclists and 17 athletes providing great track action alongside the colourful Highland dancers, solo pipers and the two pipe bands from Thurso and Inverness. Results summary to follow.
