First Woman to Complete American Ninja Warrior

Watch One Woman Shatter All Expectations

If you didn't know the name Kacy Catanzaro before, you will now. At just 5 feet tall and 100 pounds, Kacy is an inspiration who proves that size doesn't matter when it comes to fitness. As a competitor on the popular TV show American Ninja Warrior, she shattered records as the first woman to ever advance past the finals.

In order to qualify, Catanzaro had to make her way through an unbelievably challenging obstacle course that has taken down many a competitor, but the former gymnast wasn't fazed and completed the course in a cool nine minutes. Next she's headed to Mt. Midoriyama where she will face competitors from the United States and Japan in an attempt to become the ultimate ninja warrior — go Kacy!

Read up on how Kacy trained and prepped for the finals in our recent interview with her.
