Ninety athletes have
proven themselves worthy to challenge the city finals
stage of the competition. With one city left, 30 more
will soar miles above the Mile High City, while the rest
will just be... sore.
In this one city alone... 23 finishers
have already guaranteed themselves a slot in the Denver Final.
Civic Center Park
We begin with the standard six, four of
which are making their ANW debut tonight.
- QUINTUPLE STEPS: five steps, seven feet
between each one.
- ROLLING LOG: grab the log and hold on through three 360 degree
- ROTATING BRIDGE: run across before it turns and tumbles.
- JUMP HANG KAI: the next level in the classic Jump Hang... This time,
there are TWO cargo nets.
- GRIP HANG: traverse across three hanging planks.
- WARPED WALL: Fourteen feet, three tries.
As a reminder, it's win.... and in. Anyone who finishes the
qualifier moves on to the regional final and move one step closer to the
American Sasuke course in Las Vegas. If we have less than 30 complete,
the remaining spots go to the fastest and the furthest.
- Christian Okruhlik (34; Topeka, KS;
bartender) - FAIL Rotating Bridge
- Justin Eltringham (23; Live Oak, TX; USAF airman) - Nice save on the
Rotating Bridge... on Jump Hang Kai... not so much. FAIL.
- John Dodson III (28; Albuquerque, NM; professional MMA fighter) - FAIL
No one has yet to figure out the Grip
- Nika Muckelroy (26; Houston;
metallurgical engineer) - FAIL Warped Wall.
Now she has to hope that another seven
warriors do not complete it. But right now... she is the FIRST woman to
attempt the Warped Wall on American Ninja Warrior.
- Brian Arnold (35; Brighton, CO;
mechanical engineer) - COMPLETE! (24)
That triggered an amazing run of
success.... and five more follow suit. Joining Brian: Logan Dooley.
- San Sann (46; Houston, hairstylist) -
COMPLETE! (30) And he's the oldest man to complete the qualifier! EVER!
Seven more athletes finish the course,
bringing tonight's number to 14 alone! They include Connor Moyer (Nika's
- Christopher Romrell (24; American Fork,
UT; stuntman) - COMPLETE! (38)
- Shawne "Lights Out" Merriman (38; Washington, DC; former NFL all-pro
linebacker) - FAIL Jump Hang Kai
Ten more runners later... six of them
will advance, including Josh Cook. And that's before THESE three
All-Stars take the course.
- Jake Smith (25; Boulder, CO; free
runner) - COMPLETE! (39)
- Amos Rendao (30; Boulder, CO; parkour instructor) - COMPLETE! (40) ...
faster than Jake by 0.73 seconds!
- Brandon Douglass (24; Boulder, CO; parkour instructor) - COMPLETE! ...
and faster by 8.5 seconds! He is the King of Denver!
