Elet Hall was a powerhouse on American Ninja Warrior. He competed on seasons four through seven, and made it past Stage One of the National Finals every single time.
He’s since stepped away from the show, but that doesn’t diminish his accomplishments both on and off the course. Elet has Lyme Disease, something that deeply affects him on a physical and emotional level.
In this video for the Bay Area Lyme Foundation, Elet discusses how this diagnosis has changed his life. In his ongoing battle, he’s learned to celebrate and cherish the good moments.
It’s a reminder that even the strongest have pains and struggles we might not be able to see from the outside. It’s also a reminder of the importance of embracing our own happiness and the world around us.
