You need to see what American Ninja Warrior Artis Thompson III is up to now

Losing a leg is NOT holding him back.

Remember Artis Thompson III? Sure you do. Let us refresh your memory.

He competed in Oklahoma City and shared his heart breaking story of losing his brother in a motorcycle accident, then losing his own leg in another motorcycle accident.

Then he went ahead and did THIS in the Qualifiers.

Yeah. It was amazing.

But unfortunately, he didn’t qualify for the City Finals, which meant we didn’t get to see him on American Ninja Warrior again this season. Something tells us he’ll be back though.

We spotted some pretty impressive training videos on Artis’ Instagram account.

From the looks of things, we’re going to have another strong contender next season! He’s got the Quintuple Steps down. There’s some crazy things happening on the Salmon Ladder, and that Warped Wall run is amazing!

Artis is another example of the heart of American Ninja Warrior. We’re you start from doesn’t matter. It only matters where you’re going, and we’ll all do what we can to help you get there.

You can follow Artis on Instagram and Facebook.
