My Run in the Midwest Regional Finals on NBC – American Ninja Warrior 4

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

I finally got permission to publish my run and competitor profile that aired this summer on NBC in the Regional Finals of American Ninja Warrior 4. For those of you who missed it, I was the oldest competitor in the Midwest Region to advance to the Regional Finals where I got a nice feature piece of my run shown. As you can see, I just missed making it up the Warped Wall and probably progressing onto the National Finals in Las Vegas by an inch or two, and got called a ‘big old fatty’ a bunch of times by the commentators while doing it!

Almost Up the Warped Wall – Just a Couple of Inches Away

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

Keep thinking about this moment in the Midwest regional finals where I was just a couple of inches away from getting up the Warped Wall in my first attempt and most likely advancing to the national finals in Vegas. My time was pretty fast and I historically have a very high clear rate on easy Salmon Ladders (3 rungs not too far apart classifies as “easy” compared to other setups), so I believe I would have advanced even if I had then fallen on the Globe Grasp. Proud of how I did, getting to compete at all as a walkon and then being the oldest competitor to advance to the regional finals in the Midwest, but this is the moment that I’ve already replayed in my mind about 1,000 times.
