At just 22 years old, Bridger Anderson is turning heads in the notoriously dangerous world of professional rodeo, becoming the youngest to qualify for the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) this December. Known as the “Super Bowl of rodeo,” the NFR is a grueling ten-day event where it’s unheard of for anyone younger than 26 to compete.
During the NFR, Bridger will be proudly sponsored by DEFY, the world’s first mainstream hemp extract performance beverage built for athletes. DEFY made history in 2019 when it debuted the first THC-free performance hemp beverage, formulated to deliver rapid recovery, improve endurance, and decrease muscle fatigue for even the toughest athletic feats.
“As much as I love this sport, steer wrestling is dangerous, injury-inducing, and relentlessly taxing,” Bridger said. “After I started using DEFY, I noticed immediately how much my sleep and focus improved. It has become an essential part of my training regimen, and I’m thrilled to be representing DEFY at the NFR.”
“Bridger is a remarkable competitor who quite literally has changed the game,” remarked Terrell Davis (a.k.a. “TD”), co-founder of DEFY, two-time Super Bowl MVP, and NFL Hall of Famer. “He continues to thrive in a sport mostly dominated by much older competitors. He’s the embodiment of everything that we value: defying limitations, defying self-doubt, and defying perceptions of who you are and what you’re capable of achieving.”
Both Bridger and TD are available for interviews to discuss Bridger’s storied journey to the NFR, his grueling physical and mental preparation for competitions, and how DEFY fuels his recovery process.
