Hollands's Wout Zijlstra threw a huge world record in the 56-pound weight for height this weekend at the Glenarm Castle Highland Games. Zijlstra's 18' 5-1/2" throw was the latest in his string of world records in this event, and was a fitting touch for the opening competition in the five-game world series which will culminate in Rio de Janeiro later this year. Held in Ireland's County Antram, the games drew an estimated crowd of 20-25,000 people on the first day's competition, and the Earl of Antram served as Chieftain.
