5-foot-tall Kacy Catanzaro conquers 'American Ninja Warrior' course
Fox News, various ^

You don’t need to be tall to be an “American Ninja Warrior.”

Kacy Catanzaro shocked “Ninja” viewers with her height-defying performance on an impossibly challenging obstacle course that required the 5-foot-tall former NCAA Southeast Regional Gymnast of the Year to leap through the air.

Though Catanzaro’s height should have hindered her from completing the course, she breezed through some of the toughest obstacles, conquering every last one to become the first woman ever to make it through the Dallas finals and qualify for the Las Vegas finals round.

After watching the students in my daughter’s gymnastics class, I am convinced gymnasts are, pound for pound, the strongest athletes in existence.

I agree. I think, JMO, if we taught gymnastics and krav maga across the board in our military....they would be even more awesome than they already are.

"...they would be even more awesome than they already are."

Under the current regime our military is being fundamentally transformed from awesome to fabulous.

She looked like she had a tailwind going up the spider climb.

Just an incredible athlete.

Agreed. Mad respect for a gymnast. If I had a pretty thing like Kacy Catanzaro for a girlfriend I’d work pretty hard to stay in as good a shape as she is.

Or a reboot of “Gymakata” with a female lead.

And, hopefully, higher production values....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Mkl9rtttog

Coors Light is making a big mistake: she’d be a great spokeswomen for them.
