I can remember spending hours and hours on the couch watching the Japanese game show, Ninja Warrior (an extreme obstacle course) on the now defunct G4TV.
It was like a less cheese-dick version of the American Gladiators show of my youth. I loved watching these well-tuned human machines seemingly attack the impossible challenges of Mt Midioriyama from the comfort of my living room.
Now that the Japanese version of the show is no longer produced, NBC has gained the rights to produce and broadcast American Ninja Warrior (which filmed an episode or two last winter in Denver!) and the other night a very spunky gymnast kicked that mountain's ass. Check this:
Kacy, an accomplished D1 gymnast from Towson University, is the first female to ever conquer Mt Midioriyama and she did it while seemingly not breaking a sweat.
You killed it girl....nice work.
