Three athletic men: Trevor Brazile, Mo Farah, and Steve House

Trevor Brazile is an American rodeo champion, Mo Farah is a British distance runner, and Steve House is a professional climber and mountain guide.

Trevor Brazile

This Texan is the third cowboy to win more than one triple crown. He has set records and ruled the sport. Brazile took to the sport at an early age and began to ride and rope. His multi-faceted strengths put him ahead of his competitors who specialised in a particular area. He went on to break his own record placing him as the highest-earning cowboy in the sport. He surpassed Guy Allen when he became the cowboy with the most number of world titles.

Mo Farah

Mo Farah is a British citizen, but was born in Somalia after which he moved to London. It was here that he was recognised by a philanthropist who completed his naturalization. This enabled him to travel to different countries and compete without any visa issues. In 1999 and 2001, he ranked 1st in the English Cross Country Championship. It was in 2012 that Farah made history in the London Olympic Games by winning the 10,000 m Gold medal in a record time of 27:30:42. With 5 titles to his name, he is easily the most successful man in the history of European Athletics Championships.

Steve House

This Alpinist is a survivor and a fighter. Barely a year after falling from a height of 25 meters and suffering multiple fractures and a collapsed lung, House set off to climb the fifth highest mountain in the world - Makalu. Steve House is more than just a climber; he is an author, speaker, and coach. He is the 7th American to receive his certification in the International Federation of Mountain Guide Association.
