History was made on “American Ninja Warrior” when gymnast Kacy Catanzaro dominated the obstacle course, becoming the first woman ever to complete it and advance to the finals in Las Vegas, Nav. With a total time of just under nine minutes, Catanzaro finished a course that included the ring toss, spider walk, the salmon ladder and many more tough tasks.
At only five feet tall, many of the obstacles could have proven even more difficult, but Catanzaro refused to be stopped and looked at home on the course. Now Catanzaro, who competed in gymnastics at Towson University, moves on to the finals and the ultimate obstacle, Mt. Midoriyama.
“American Ninja Warrior” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/Pt on NBC.
