Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in American Ninja Warrior history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.
EDIT: Thanks to this anon, I’ve been informed that Ayako Miyake was the first woman to qualify and finish the Female Japanese Ninja Warrior three times. While it’s not the same course, she’s another equally incredible woman performing a difficult feat.
Will American Ninja Warrior crown its first female champion at the top of Mount Midoriyama?
Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman ever to complete a city finals course, in Dallas, and the first woman to ever make it to the finals in Las Vegas. If she manages to conquer Mount Midoriyama she could win the $500,000 prize and the title of American Ninja Warrior.
