San Francisco's cable car ringing contest crowned a new champion Thursday.

Trini Whitaker showed off his championship bell ringing along with plenty of rhythm and some style. He's had plenty of practice, having been on cable car duty for 10 years.

Whitaker dethroned Leonard Oats, who had won three years running.

This was the 49th year the contest has been held. It was cancelled last year because of labor problems.
