The weekend's Highland Games World Championships in Pleasanton, California will feature defending champion Matt Sandford (Australia) and former champion Ryan Vierra (USA). Francis Brebner (Scotland) was just scratched from the start list, as he was hospitalized this weekend after an automobile accident. Besides all the usual excitement of a top level Highland Games competition, this weekend will allow heavy events fans to see the controversial spin technique used on the 56 for height, as it will be permitted in the Sunday afternoon, non-scoring, version of this event. This weekend's world championships is part of the 136th Annual Scottish Gathering and Games hosted by The Caledonian Club of San Francisco.
