In the caber toss, athletes lift a nearly 20-foot pole and try to flip it end over end
Where it’s popular: Scotland
How it’s played: Caber tossing is a throwing sport, but in this case, the distance doesn’t matter. Athletes must hoist a 19.5-foot, 175-pound pole and toss it in such a way that it turns end over end one time, lands perfectly on its top, and falls away from the thrower. A perfect throw takes a combination of strength and technique.
How big is it? The caber toss is a staple of the Highland Games held across Scotland each spring and summer.
