Tie-Down Roper Swor Sidelined with Broken Arm

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Tie-down roper Cade Swor, a seven-time qualifier for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, is out indefinitely with a broken right arm.

Swor suffered the injury while competing at the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, July 11, and he had surgery on the arm the same day. He’s expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks.

Swor qualified for the Wrangler NFR in 2004-06 and 2014-17. He finished a career-best fourth in the 2017 world standings with $210,748. At last season’s Wrangler NFR he placed in eight rounds – highlighted by a second-place finish in Round 2 – and finished third in the average with $125,288.

As of July 12, Swor was 22nd in the world standings with $34,880.
