London Scottish International Highland Games 2010

Not one to undersell his competition, Douglas Edmunds calls it, “The biggest [Highland] Games of the year, in terms of athlete quality,” and said it “will take place at the historical London Scottish rugby ground in Richmond, London on the 5th & 6th of June 2010,” in a prepared statement sent to IronMind® today.
“The Games are being jointly promoted by Gregor Edmunds and the London Scottish RFC, which has produced more Scottish international players than any other club.  The event is being supported by household names of the Scottish food industry and many personalities will be in attendance.  The current Miss Great Britain will present prizes and Alan Wells, Olympic sprint champion, has been asked to judge the running events,” Edmunds’ statement continued.
The field of athletes (described as “a galaxy of stars”) includes: Gregor Edmunds, Scott Rider, Sean Betz, Aaron Neighbour, Sebastian Wenta and Mike Zolkiewicz.

Also from Edmunds’ statement:

“There will also be an international strongman contest featuring: Mikhail Koklyaev (Russia) who many believe to be the strongest man in the world, and World's Strongest Man competitors including Richard Skog (Norway), Stefan Solvi Petursson (Iceland), Mark Felix (England) and Laurence Shahlaei (England).
“A unique aspect of the competition will be the coming together of both strongman and highlanders in a joint attempt to break the record for the 56-lb. weight for height with exciting prospect of Michael Zolkiewicz (USA) confronting Mikhail Koklyaev (Russia) who are both stratospheric in this event.”
