David Loughman wins his first Highland Games

david

The Irish strength Association would like to congratulate David Loughman on winning his first ever Highland Games in his career.  David has been competing in Highland Games through the ISA for a number of years now and he has improved his performance through his technique and mind set.  David has a number of tricky opponents to face in these competitions such as 7 time Highland Warrior champion Jonathan Kelly but David uses his experience to overcome these strong competitors. On the 25th June in Bangor, David was competing in the latest games and got off to a perfect start in the stone putt and the hammer throw. However, he did face some difficulty in the weight over the bar and the sheaf toss by Pete McCallen and Simon Flint having star performances.  To finish David done enough in the 56 for distance and the keber toss to come out on top.  This wins puts David one step closer to winning his first ever Highland Warrior Trophy.  The ISA would like to thank Powerful Yoghurt for sponsoring this event. The ISA wish David all the best as he prepares for the next Highland Games in the series.
