Bill Anderson is undoubtedly the greatest ‘heavy’ of modern times. Two times World Highland Games Champion and 16 times Scottish Champion, he dominated the Highland Games Championships between 1959 and 1988. During the Games at Lochearnhead in 1969 he broke both the 16 pound hammer record and the hammer itself, causing a delay in the competition. Anderson retired from competition in 1988 and now, when not coaching young athletes, is a much sought-after judge at Highland Games around the world. Other notable achievements include being the four times World Caber Tossing Champion, five times USA Highland Games Champion, and the 1977 Canadian Highland Games Champion.
