Cupar, Scotland – June 14, 2014 – Allan Russell won three events and was second in the other for a superlative day at the Cupar Highland Games in Fife, Scotland. The event had a smaller entry than usual, mainly due to the UK Pipe Band Championships running on the same day. After some initial confusion about the draw, the contest took place in warm and humid conditions weather.

TIP OF THE DAY
