Scott takes ti­tle at In­ver­aray

The Oban Times - - News - Pho­to­graph: Kevin McG­lynn

Scott Rider cel­e­brates with the ground staff af­ter win­ning the gold medal in the world cham­pi­onship for caber toss­ing at In­ver­aray High­land Games on Tues­day. The Kent-based heavy­weight ath­lete saw off a strong field com­pet­ing in the grounds of In­ver­aray Cas­tle on a day blessed with hot tem­per­a­tures and plenty of sun­shine – un­like re­cent times which have seen Argyll del­uged with per­sis­tent rain. The heavy­weight events were the high­light of the games, with the caber world cham­pi­onship as the fo­cal point, but with much at­ten­tion on the pip­ing, danc­ing, ath­let­ics and cycling. Scott is no stranger to sports fans north of the bor­der, hav­ing rep­re­sented Eng­land in the shot put com­pe­ti­tion at the Com­mon­wealth Games in Glas­gow in 2014. Don’t miss next week’s Oban Times for a full re­port and pic­ture spe­cial.
