Ryan Stratis is one of the most beloved competitors on American Ninja Warrior. As a member of the United States National Guard, he will try to qualify for ANW7 on the military episode (July 6). He will also be rooting for his ANW military friend Dustin McKinney, aka Navy McNinja.
According to Sasukepedia, Stratis has been trying to get on SASUKE since the original American Ninja Challenge in 2007. He placed 25th in the preliminary round of American Ninja Warrior 2. He won the semi-finals on American Ninja Warrior 3 and qualified for SASUKE 27. On ANW5 he “shockingly failed the Jumping Spider in the First Stage.” On ANW6 in Miami, he lost his grip on the Metal Spin. American Ninja Warrior airs Mondays at 8pm on NBC.
