Cowboys have been tangling with steers at the Pendleton Round Up for more than 100 years but Baker City cowboy Jesse Brown needed less than 4 seconds to make history.
Brown, 27, not only won the steer wrestling event at the famous rodeo on Saturday.
In the finals Brown brought his steer down in 3.7 seconds.
His performance broke the Round Up arena record of 3.8 seconds set in 2002 by K.C. Jones and equalled in 2014 by Casey Martin.
See Wednesday's issue of the Baker City Herald for an interview with Brown on his record-setting performance.
