Scotland's Bruce Aitken was best known for his hammers (in true Scottish fashion) but in 2004 he brought home the ultimate prize - the World Championship. Aitken cemented his spot in history that weekend with a staggering light hammer throw of 154'6". In 2000, he set the then world record in the light hammer at 156'8".
With wins at Halkirk and Bremar, Bruce was no stranger to taking home top honors in the sport's more competitive fields. Aitken and his late brother, Stephen, are arguably the best brother combination this sport has seen. They can largely thank their father for that - a known hammer technician who competed against the great Bill Anderson.
