A young Ninja named Luke took full advantage of his access to American Ninja Warriors at the GCA NLL competition. Luke is working on a YouTube channel called “Luke’s Free Run” and grabbed some interviews with the Ninjas on their predictions for season nine.
Luke: “What do you think your chances are of winning the show next season?”
Joe Moravsky: “70%”
Allyssa Beird: “My personal goal would be Stage One and Stage Two next year.”
Josh Levin: “I think, overall, if you take them one at a time, pace yourself, make sure you’re not rushing, think through them clearly, then anything’s possible.”
Luke: “How do you feel about your chances of completing the entire Ninja Warrior series of courses next season?”
Noel Reyes: “Season nine is definitely my year.”
Jon Alexis Jr: “We have a few more months, so I’m going to increase the rock climbing and running for stamina, then I’ll have a really good chance. Better than the years before.”
Jesse Labreck: “My goal is to make it to Stage Two in Vegas. And then my goal is to keep increasing from there and we’ll see where it goes.”
Luke: “How do you feel about your chances during your next season of American Ninja Warrior, of completing the whole course?”
Ryan Stratis: “Last year I had the shoulder surgery, but I’m feeling really great this year. Feeling pretty positive.”
Then Luke had a little run-in with Drew Drechsel, who was in a full on competition mode and wasn’t ready for an impromptu interview.
The young journalist received a bit of a lesson in approaching subjects.
Never break a Ninja’s focus. NEVER.
It was all in good fun, and they worked it out quickly.
Luke: “How do you feel you’re going to do on the next season of American Ninja Warrior?”
Drew Drechsel: “I could do it again next year. I could even go further. But it takes one mistake on any obstacle. Anyone can go out. So we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Drew will be rock climbing with Josh Levin to make sure the Hang Climb won’t trip him up this season.
Great job getting those interviews, Luke!
