In Port Lincoln, South Australia, there is an annual competition of Tuna throwing. I personally have never seen this activity, but an Adeladian staying in my house told me about it.

Dean Lukin, the Olympic Gold medalist weight lifter is a also a champion Tuna Thrower. He grew up on Tuna boats and did some of his Olympic training on the boats hefting around full grown tuna.

An tuna can weigh as much as an adult human... ie 50kg plus... smiley - smiley
