A total of 10 Canadians advanced to the Sunday Showdown from Pool A at the 2021 Calgary Stampede on Monday. To qualify for the Sunday Showdown, you need to have placed in the top four places over the first four days of competition.

The 10 Canadians who have reached the Sunday Showdown are Zeke Thurston of Big Valley, Alberta, and Kolby Wanchuk of Sherwood Park, Alberta in the saddle bronc, Dantan Bertsch of Eastend, Saskatchewan in the bareback, Dakota Buttar of Kindersley, Saskatchewan, Cody Coverchuk of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, and Garrett Green of Meeting Creek, Alberta in the bull riding, Curtis Cassidy of Donalda, Alberta in the steer wrestling, and Bertina Olafson of Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan, Justine Elliott of Lacombe, Alberta, and Lynette Brodoway of Brooks, Alberta in the women’s barrel racing.

In Monday’s action, Kyle Lucas of Carstairs, Alberta had the fastest time in the tie-down roping competition at seven seconds, while Cody Cassidy of Donalda, Alberta had the fastest time in the steer wrestling competition at 4.2 seconds. Even though Lucas had the fastest time in the tie-down roping, and Cody Cassidy had the fastest time in the steer wrestling, they do not advance directly to the Sunday Showdown because they were not among the top four cowboys in Pool A.
