Thanks to the Scottish American Athletics Association (SAAA), the Seaside Highland Games, Athletic Director Brandon Goodman and Rich Wilson, there’s a Highland Games World Championships for guys under 200 lb. and it’s going to be in Ventura, California on October 13.

“It is an honor to have earned my second opportunity to compete at this world class event put on by the S.A.A.A and Athletic Director Brandon Goodman and Rich Wilson, while also supporting fund raising for breast cancer research,” Ryan Seckman told IronMind.
