Maritime Heavyweight Championship


The Heavyweights competition originates from the challenge placed upon the men of the Scottish villages to prove their worth to their Laird (Lord)  If you had the strength and stamina to win then you would become the 'Chieftans favourite'

Come witness the strength and stamina or our 'modern day warriors'

The Ogilvie Stone Challenge

The Ogilvie Stone was used for the very first time at the Inaugural Colchester Highland Games & Gathering. 

Historically the 'Stone of Strength'  or 'The Manhood Stone' would have to be lifted to chest height by the young males of the Scottish highland clans as a right of passage into manhood, this tradition has spanned throughout the centuries.

Our 'Stone of Strength' weighs approximately 230lbs and will be used in the strong man contests.

 

Adam Ogilvie who is our local Heavyweight competitor and co-ordinator of the Heavyweight Competition at the Games has put up $50 or his own hard earned money as a challenge to anyone out there who would like to try their luck (for a $5 donation) at being able to lift the stone onto their shoulder!   (and yes the stone is called after him as he was the one who found it in the River and dragged it (with help initially) back to his home (on HIS shoulder)!

 

There will one chance to lift it all the way, one slip and your chance has gone. 

The first person to get it up on to their shoulder is the winner of the $50.

If your chest is as far as you can get it, don't worry, you will still be recorded as having performed this great feat of strength in the

'Ogilvie Stone' Journal for all time.
