Mighty Kacy Catanazaro was the first woman to finish a city finals course on American Ninja Warrior. This year she’s one of the remaining finalists in Vegas. Can she do it again? In Vegas, Catanazaro will face the four-stage course modeled after the Mount Midoriyama course in Japan.
She said she felt a lot of pressure going into the Houston finals this year. After failing to complete the course, but getting a wildcard entry to Vegas, she said, “I felt like I failed.” But she took her own advice to not be discouraged by failure. “Suck it up when it gets hard,” she says, “and keep truckin’ along.” Of course she wants to hit the buzzer in Vegas. “No woman has ever done it, and I know that it’s possible. I know that I can conquer that course.” American Ninja Warrior airs Mondays at 8pm on NBC.
