Jesse Labreck: From American Ninja Warrior rookie to all-star in one season

She blazed a new trail for female Ninjas in season 8.

Jesse "Flex" Labreck had the most impressive rookie seasons by a female ninja in the history of American Ninja Warrior. There were unbelievable moments in it:

  • Becoming the first woman to defeat Rolling Thunder
  • Her effortless one and done shot at the Warped Wall
  • Her simplistic conquering of the Salmon Ladder
  • Becoming the first female ninja to qualifying for the National Finals in her rookie season

As impressive as she was on the course in the regular season, Jesse was just as impressive in the All Star special, competing in 3 different events across the night!
