Roworth Breaks Canadian Steer Wrestling Record
Seventeen year old Dayton Roworth of Czar now holds the fastest time in amateur steer wrestling after breaking the national record with a time of 2.7 seconds.

The Wild Rose Rodeo Association finals were held in Barrhead on September 15 and Roworth told The Provost News in an interview that he was the youngest competitor there, beating out nine cowboys that ranged in age up to 40 years old.

The previous record holder was Dave Gibbons, formerly of Hardisty but now of Innisfail who had a recorded time of 2.9 seconds.

Roworth, who has been competing for four years said it “felt good” but added “it happened pretty quick”.

He competes for the adrenaline rush and “love for the sport.” His father Lee Roworth and Leon Laye have been working with him on his skills.

Though never wearing protective gear, Dayton hasn’t been hurt over the years.

The season is not over yet and the Hughenden high school student hopes to be in Thorsby on October 13 for another steer wrestling event and after that he will practice with Darren Zieffle of Consort this winter.

His goal is to be the Canadian champion and to make it to the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.
His father Lee Roworth said that Dayton did “pretty good” also qualifying for the national high school rodeo in Springfield, Illinois this summer. There Dayton took second place in July with 68 high school steer wrestlers competing.
