Stone lifting is a challenge that dates back to the demonstrations of strength and skill of the Canarian aborigines, though it became particularly popular after the conquest. The aim is to lift heavy stones with different objectives: lifting them as high as possible, throwing them as far as possible, raising them as high as possible without touching the body, or carrying them for the longest distance.
