Both Jake Watson and Stephen Culling did well enough at the Calgary Stampede to advance to the final round on July 14, in saddlebronc and steer wrestling respectively. Watson finished second in Pool A to advance to the final, with a high score of 87.5 points, while Culling finished fourth in Pool A with a fastest time of 3.9 seconds.
Unfortunately, neither had their best runs on Sunday. Watson had a score of 85, good enough for seventh, short of the top-four finish he would need to advance to the short-go (money round). Likewise, Culling had a disappointing time of 16.9 seconds, which put him in ninth.
At the Stampede as a whole, Watson walked away with $12,500 in earnings, while Culling took home $8,500. Clayton Moore also competed in steer wrestling, but missed out on the final. He made $4,500 in earnings at the Stampede.
