Every fall, New Hampshire hosts the New Hampshire Highland Games. This is a Highland Games competition and a Scottish heritage festival. It was held at the Loon Mountain Resort. The festival consists of merchants selling traditional Scottish items and food, and a Highland Games competition featuring both amateur and professional athletes from around the world.
This year, Hafthor Bjornnson attended as a celebrity guest and competitor. You may know him from Game of Thrones, where he plays Ser Gregor Clegane, also known as “The Mountain.” He set two world records. One for lifting a 341 pound stone over his head, and the other for throwing a 56 pound weight over a bar 19 feet 9 inches high.
