Chatelherault Highland Games - part two, The “Tossing of the Caber” this is a Scottish tradition, only performed by a few in Scotland. The object is to toss the caber (throw the pole) up in the air and it must go completely head over heels and at all times keep moving away from the contestant. The Caber is 19 feet 6 inches, 175 pounds (79kg) not an easy task at all, this man did it.

Love the action pictures and the movement. I saw some of this on TV and it takes its man to throw those poles :) Funny sport :)
