Athlete Spotlight: Meagan McKee – 4X World Champion

For those of you in the athletic division of the Highland Games, then this lady needs no introduction! For everyone else, let me introduce you!

Meet Meagan McKee, your 4x consecutive (and current) Women’s Scottish Highland Games World Champion! Meagan hails from San Jose, California. By day she’s a High School Social Studies teacher, but in her spare time she has been killing it on the fields of the Scottish Highland Games for the past 10 years. It should come to no surprise as her dad, Ron McKee, was also an accomplished professional Highland Games athlete and 2x Master’s World Champion. It’s clearly in the DNA!

Meagan’s favorite events are the hammer throw and caber toss. She currently holds two world records: One in the Light Hammer at 121’4” and the other for the Heavy Hammer at 101’11”. Wowza!

Be sure to give her a follow on Instagram and cheer her on if you see her on the fields at your next Highland Games.
