Last week, a shcoker in
Venice as longtime Ninja Warrior veteran Brent
Steffensen failed the Salmon Ladder and failed to secure
one of 100 seats on the bus to Vegas. His loss... 15
others' gain, as Dustin Rocho, James McGrath, JB
Douglas, and David Campbell, among others, are on their
way to Midoriyama. Now the attention shifts to Baltimore
on the road to an AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR!
Joining the qualifier course are three
- QUINTUPLE STEPS
- DOWNHILL JUMP
- PRISM TILT
- SWING JUMP

- BODY PROP: A Sasuke Stage 3 classic, wedge yourself onto two planks
and shimmy your way to the other side.
- SPIDER CLIMB: Wedge yourself inside and climb three stories to finish
Thirty will run the course. Only the top
15 will advance to the Final Sasuke. Remember, win-and-in is still in
play. Hit the buzzer, go to Vegas.
