Sara Knight of Mount Vernon, Washington is an Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) athlete who plans to “remain a top athlete in my field.” One way to do that is to compete on American Ninja Warrior. Prior to her appearance on the show, on Facebook, Sara has been posting lots of photos and videos of her outdoor training in the picturesque Pacific Northwest.
Days prior to the Season 8 premiere of American Ninja Warrior, Sara notched a first place finish at Terrain Race in Portland, Oregon. She posted the photo above — that’s Sara in the middle holding her very first big novelty check ($300). She wrote proudly on Facebook: “I felt great conquering the Monkey Balls Rig twice w/o failure, and I enjoyed the two lap format that caused participants to slide around in the mud. Gotta love the rainy day race!” American Ninja Warrior airs Wednesdays at 8pm on NBC.
