Sheaf Toss

Sheaf Toss, for many years, has been a part of the Highland Games. In this event, competitors throw a 16-pound (7 kg) burlap sack filled with straw over a horizontal bar, located above their heads. Each competitor is given three chances to clear the bar without touching it. As challengers make their attempts, the bar is raised incrementally until all, but one athlete is eliminated.
