SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Wednesday September 5 2018 15 News It takes plenty of sausage sizzles to be a Canterbury local... STRENGTH: Craig Manson competes in hammer throw at last year’s games. Heavy events training day for Highland Games planned A HEAVY events training day is taking place on Saturday in preparation for the Hororata Highland Games. The event, which will be held at Hororata Domain, gives competitors the chance to train with New Zealand’s most awarded heavy event athlete Pat Hellier. It is open to anyone aged 18 years and over and costs $50, which includes lunch. Registration is required for the event, which will take place between 10am and 3pm. For the first time there is an opportunity for junior and teen warriors, children aged between eight and 17-years-old, to attend the training day to work with athletes. This is a free session which will run from 3pm to 4.30pm. Event manager Cindy Driscoll said they are developing new competitions, providing extra facilities and working to attract new top-level competitors. “Without the competitions, we would not have an event, so we have always been dedicated to ensuring the competitor’s experience is first class,” she said. New to this year’s games is the FMG teen warriors competition for 15 to 17-year-olds to compete over four heavy athletic disciplines at the games. The heavy events are not the only competitions to inspire at the games. The Highland dancing is now the largest one competition in New Zealand and has introduced many new dancers to the sport. “This year there will be more space around the dance stage, a larger marquee for the competitors to prepare in and we are working on ways to weatherproof the dance stage,” Mrs Driscoll said.
