International Highland Games Federation
The aim of the IHGF is to establish and promote the traditions of Highland Games wherever possible and to encourage young athletes into the sport with the many coaching clinics arranged by the Federation.
The IHGF was founded in 2001 and is now recognized worldwide as the governing body of Highland Games which has total of twenty-three affiliated countries to date. The IHGF sanctions many European and World Championship events around the globe by standardizing the traditional throwing implements and enforcing strict drug testing policies within the Federation.
Between IHGF President Francis Brebner, Vice President Adam Darazs, and Honorary Life Member Ryan Vierra the three have become a major driving force in Highland Games worldwide promoting the sport which is fast becoming more popular especially in European countries where major IHGF Championship events are covered for European TV networks.
The IHGF has a series of championship events in place which enables amateur athletes to work their way up through the ranks from amateur to the professional ranks. The IHGF invites the top national champion from each country to compete in the IHGF World Amateur Highland Games Championship; from there the winner of that event will have earned their professional status and secured to compete Professional Highland Games.

Pso-RiteLearn how you can repair your injuries with PSO-Rite
Pso-Rite.com was created out of necessity. The founder had lower back pain affecting his work and everyday life. He was going to a therapist 2-4 times a week to help with this problem. After a couple of weeks, he realized the root problem came from his hip flexors muscles, mainly the PSOAS muscles. Going to a therapist 2-4 times a week wasn't realistic, so he needed to create a product that mimicked his therapist's hand, allowing him to perform the PSOAS massage any time of the day.
