Drew Drechsel and Allyssa Beird take home the National Ninja League championships

It was a long road to the NNL Finals, but these American Ninja Warriors made it.

We’ve been following all the action of the National Ninja League for the past few months. All the hard work and all the competitions have boiled down to this, the NNL finals which took place March 4-5.

Two familiar American Ninja Warriors took home the championships.

Allyssa was one of the four women who qualified for the Philadelphia City Finals in season eight. She also received a wild card for the National Finals. During the NNL season, she’s been an incredibly strong competitor. This leaves her in a great position if she returns to American Ninja Warrior for season nine.

Drew Drechsel is an American Ninja Warrior veteran. In season eight, he went farther than any other Ninja, making it to the Hang Climb on Stage Three of the National Finals. Always a force to be reckoned with, his win at the NNL adds to his long list of accomplishments.
