'I Have To Step Up When My Name Is Called' - Shane Hanchey On Winning The 2019 Canadian Title
Nov 6, 2019
The 2019 Canadian Finals Rodeo was not going the way it was supposed to for Shane Hanchey. The reigning, and three-time Canadian champion was struggling through his week in Red Deer, Alberta, and it didn't look like he would be taking home a fourth title this year.
Until round five.
The fans at Westerner Park finally got the see the Shane Hanchey they'd grown accustomed to when he jumped out and made a 7.3-second run. A run that meant maybe - and that was a big maybe - he still had a chance at the Canadian title.
Hanchey sat in his hotel room watching football, thinking about the big-time players that will be immortalized for their never-failing determination to win, and ability to come through under extreme pressure.
'I just figured if I want to be a guy that people talk about when my rodeo career is done, then I have to step up with my name is called," said Hanchey.
And step up he did. With a run of 7.2 seconds, Hanchey was able to win the final round, the aggregate and his fourth Canadian title.
