National Finals Rodeo
Trevor Knowles of Mount Vernon, Ore. pulls a steer on its back in the second go-round of the steer wrestling competition of the National Finals Rodeo, Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, in Las Vegas. Trevor Knowles of Mount Vernon, Ore., won steer wrestling Monday in 3.3 and was in sixth in the standings at the National Finals Rodeo, only $26,296 out of first.
"If you've ever put a cowboy hat on and competed at a rodeo, you've thought about a world title," Knowles said. "If you haven't, you're in the wrong sport. If I come here and do great, and I can come out of here as a world champion, it's the greatest personal accomplishment I could have." (AP Photo/Julie Jacobson)
