American Strength Legends has been overwhelmed lately by your requests to see more Scottish Highland Games athletes on American Strength Legends website. So, ASL has decided to not only feature a Scottish Highland Games athlete, but to feature the premier Highlands athlete, Ryan Vierra. Mr. Vierra is not only the premier American Highlands athlete in the US, but is also top in the world. Ryan Vierra's accomplishments speak for themselves. He is a three time world champion in the games (1998, 1997 and 1996). He has won over 70 championships. He has set 160 Games records, 7 international records, 2 North American and American records and 2 World Championship records. He has even tipped his hat to strongman competitions, pressing 374 pounds overhead in the flintsone press. A former collegiate shot putter, his technique is unparalleled. On top of all of this, he is bull strong. He has power cleaned 385 pounds, push pressed 374 pounds and has done high bar back squats with 640 pounds for a double with only knee wraps and a belt on.
