Kacy Catanzaro Destroys American Ninja Warrior

That lady is a 100-pound badass.


Okay, yes, I watch American Ninja Warrior. My only defense: I have an 8-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy. It’s hard to find programming on which the whole family can agree (the wife will tell you that she gets no vote whatsoever). And, yes, while watching Monday’s broadcast, I cried. Teared up, really. But let’s not quibble. My defense on that front: I cry easily.

Monday’s show was the Dallas finals. Never has a woman completed a full course. On Monday, 5-foot-tall, 100-pound Kacy Catanzaro did it. Truly amazing. See for yourself:

    Great video! I feel like maybe I’ve already seen it on the site, but maybe it was somewhere else. Hm. I’ll have to look. Anyway, I’ll let you know what I find out.

      If you’re saying I should LOOK at the blog BEFORE I put up a post, then you are clearly stuck inside the box. I pity you. But not enough to make me cry.

    TIL: Frontburner really really likes America Ninja Warrior.

    I am disappointed that the obstacle course is constructed in such a way that a competitor the size of Kacy Catanzaro cannot adequately compete.
