American Ninja Warrior: Colorado competitors featured on tonight's episode
Tonight's episode of American Ninja Warrior will feature seven Colorado badasses tackling the television show's near-impossible obstacle course for a chance to make it to the finals and win $500,000. All seven belong to a local parkour gym called APEX Movement. Check out the show tonight on NBC at 8 p.m.
And see photos of the local competitors running the course below.
Jake Smith, who's featured in the first photo below, spoke to us in May about being a ninja. "It's just an obstacle course," he said. "The ninja part is just the romanticizing bit of it." Maybe so. But we're still impressed.
