Adriane Wilson Wins Highland Games World Championships

Adriane Wilson proved once again that she’s the woman to beat in the Highland Games as she won the 2013 Women’s World Championships this past weekend.

“I wanted to share with you that we had an amazing Women’s Highland Games World Championships event that came down to the last two events between three-time world champion Adriane Wilson and last year’s third-place Kristy Scott, who recently had to undergo surgery on her shoulder,” AZCS Athletic Director Ryan Seckman reported to IronMind.

“Adriane took the lead early, winning the first four events, and then Kirsty would storm back taking the next two events. It came down to Weight Over Bar and Caber (just like the crowd wanted) and Adriane showed a champion’s heart and won Weight Over Bar against the same person who held the world record for this event and this seemed to give Adriane the boost she needed as she would also go on to win the caber and ultimately the title.

“Kristy is a force to be reckoned with and is getting better and better each year.  Amazing people and talented athletes in this group of world class female Highland Games athletes.  We are working hard to gain additional sponsors to grow this event and next year is our 50th Anniversary we plan to make the women's worlds to be a prime time event," said Seckman.

Here are the final scores:

1. Adriane Wilson 15
2. Kristy Scott 19
3. Sara Holgers 32
4. Beth Burton 37
5. Katie Steingreaber 47
6. Lisa Gourlay 51
7. Heather MacDonald 57
8. Britney Boswell 66
