Miss Scotland Thrills World’s Strongest Men at International Highland Games In London

Miss Scotland, Katharine Brown, thrilled strongman champions from around the globe yesterday when she spent the day in as chieftain of an International Highland Games hosted by London Scottish FC.

Katharine, who is also Miss UK, was at the event as an ambassador of Scotch Beef and joined throngs of supporters who gathered at Richmond which hosted the Highland Games in the Capital for the first time in more than three decades.

After performing the traditional opening ceremony, Katharine watched the competitors, who had flown into the event from as far afield as Russia and Australia.

They competed in tests of strength and skill including the whisky barrel carry, pitching the sheaf, the heavy hammer and the grain bag carry.
