Update 3rd November – turns out COVID is not quite done with us yet! Unfortunately, our two Europen competitors tested positive the day they were meant to board their flight which means they will not make it to the Hororata this year. We still have an amazing field from Australia and New Zealand who will put on a show as they battle it out for the Championships!
After two years of COVID interruptions, we are excited to welcome a massive field of New Zealand and international athletes to the Hororata Highland Games 5th November 2022.
Athletes will compete in four different heavy event categories. All categories will be hugely competitive, this will be an epic show to witness, a clash of the titans!
The premier category, the Oceania Heavyweight Championship, will see the Kiwi lads take on the best of the best from Australia.
The New Zealanders in the Oceania Championship will also compete for the New Zealand Heavyweight Championship which Hororata is hosting on behalf of Waipu Caledonian Society as they were unable to run their Highland Games in 2022.
There are some amazing female athletes taking the field from New Zealand and Australia.
