Amanda Ford, a 33-year-old former Marine door gunner who served two combat missions overseas, took on her competition in Scottish athletic events Friday at the 61st Grandfather Mountain Highland Games like she was still on active duty. She placed first in six out of the seven heavy athletic events and was the only contestant to successfully turn the caber, an 18-foot, 110-pound telephone pole-like tree trunk.
