Records

For most of the heavy events, there is a bonus prize payable to any athlete who breaks the
existing Arisaig Games record.
American star Larry Brock consistently set new records in the hammer and the weight for
distance between 2004 - 2007. Sebastian Wenta , the runner-up in the World’s Strongest
Man competition in 2007, broke the record for the weight over the bar as recently as 2011.
That same year, his brother Lucas came within 2 feet of both of the long-standing records in
the light and heavy shot. Those records had been set by the famous English athlete Arthur
Rowe in the 1960’s and have lasted around 50 years. Below are details of the current
Arisaig Games records.
