The athletes that compete on American Ninja Warrior are amazing. I've completed several marathons and finished multiple obstacle runs like Muddy Warrior, Warrior Dash, and Tough Mudder, and would love to take a crack at the American Ninja Warrior course. I'd totally fail, but it looks like it would be a lot of fun! According to Entertainment Weekly, "there has only been one athlete to beat the brutally difficult American Ninja Warrior course and win the show's top prize."

Three athletes from Rochester will get their shot at conquering the American Ninja Warrior course this year. KTTC says the season will kick off on June 5th. That episode will feature Roo Yori, who will be making his 4th appearance on the show. Greg Hanson will compete in the Cincinnati qualifying episode and Candace Granberg will be on the Tacoma episode.
