Denver Final 2
August 19

The hardest obstacle course in America just got even harder, and the deepest City Final field is about to take it as the search for the American Ninja Warrior heads back to the Mile High City to cut the field from an astonishing 48... to just the top 15. So far three have their tickets stamped for Las Vegas. Will we get at least 12 more out of the runners tonight - which include Brian Arnold, Sam Sann, and veteran Paul Kasemir - or will the fastest-furthest come into play? It's the final show before Vegas as we round out the Denver finals.

DENVER
Civic Center Park

Joining the qualifier course are four new obstacles...

- QUINTUPLE STEPS
- ROLLING LOG
- ROTATING BRIDGE
- JUMP HANG KAI: the distance between the launch tramp and the net is now 9.5 feet.
- GRIP HANG: the space between railsets has also been increased.
- WARPED WALL.
- SALMON LADDER: One rung, as many planks as it takes to reach...
- FLOATING STAIRS: Carry yourself over three sets of stairs using only your arms.
- POLE GRASPER: Traverse over the water using only a series of vertical poles.
- SPIDER CLIMB: Wedge yourself inside and climb three stories to finish the course.

Win-and-in is still in play. Hit the buzzer, go to Vegas. If 15 fail to do so, then the spots go to the fastest and the furthest.

First up tonight...

- Jake Smith (25; Boulder, CO; freerunner): FAIL Floating Stairs. It was a course-out as he used his hands to support himself on the edge of the Salmon Ladder.
- Amos Rendao (20; Boulder, CO; parkour instructor): With Jake out and Brandon Douglass too injured to compete, it's up to him. After a blindfolded Quint Step run... FAIL Salmon Ladder
- Adam Parkhurst (28; Dallas; firefighter): FAIL Grip Hang
- Casey Finley (30; Chanute, KS; gymnastics coach): FAIL Pole Grasper

Four more took their turn, but the Salmon Ladder took each of them out.

- Sam Sann (46; Houston; gym owner): FAIL Salmon Ladder

The Floating Stairs take out four more.

- Brian Arnold (35; Brighton, CO; maintenance supervisor): COMPLETE! (3:50.43)

Three more up... Three more down.

- Tremayne Dortch (27; Houston; personal trainer): FAIL Pole Grasper

And then there was one...

- Paul Kasemir (26; Longmont, CO; software engineer): a Ninja Warrior veteran through and through... COMPLETE! (3:19.50) The man is going back to Vegas!

Joining him...
