Meulenberg & Highland Games

Dr. Robert Meulenberg, associate professor of physics and LASST faculty member, was featured in Bangor Metro’s August issue. Meulenberg, an Orono resident, is one of two Mainers who compete professionally at Highland Games around the country. Before he competed in Highland Games, he took part in strongman and powerlifting competitions for more than a decade — but got hooked on the Scottish games after his first time.
“It’s not just a bunch of big dudes throwing stuff around. It’s a celebration of Celtic culture, and the camaraderie is just fantastic. There are some great guys and women that compete, and you just spend the day together, hanging out, wearing kilts, competing and having a beer afterwards,” said Meulenberg.
