Cowgirls Were Crowned in Cowtown at the Women’s Rodeo World Championship
The richest week in women’s rodeo has come to a conclusion as the Women’s Rodeo World Championship (WRWC) paid out over $750,000 in the historic Cowtown Coliseum, crowning some of the sport’s most impressive athletes.
Cheyenne Wimberly made her WRWC debut as an event alternate on the pro leaderboard and stopped the clock in a fleeting 13.105 seconds in the Showdown Round to take home the title and a check for $63,400.
After moving on from the last chance qualifier, Kelsie Domer capitalized on her opportunity in Cowtown as she roped her calf in a flash with a 2.16-second run to cinch the Breakway Roping Event Champion Title. Domer walked away with $61,000 in earnings.
With the horsepower and grit Martha Angelone and Jackie Crawford possess it only makes sense that these two cowgirls notched the quickest time in the team roping as they laid down a 7.08-second run in the Showdown Round to take home the title and a check for $61,000 each.
Martha Angelone went on the secure the All-Around World Championship Title as well as she competed in multiple disciplines including team roping heading, team roping heeling, and breakaway roping. Angelone earned an additional $20,000 at the WRWC bringing her weekend earnings to over $80,000.
