Little Ninja Yoshi's epic win over Drew Drechsel & Joe Moravsky!

Posted by American Ninja Warrior Nation on Monday, May 8, 2017

When the NBC’s first FanFest set up in Cleveland, we knew this event would be so much fun for American Ninja Warrior fans. The Ninjas would be milling around the crowd. Hosts Kristine Leahy, Akbar Gbajabiamila and Matt Iseman would be stopping by to greet people. There would be an awesome inflatable course so everyone could get their Ninja on.

But it was an unexpected celebrity encounter that really took the cake. Little Ninja and viral sensation Yoshi stopped by!

Even the Ninja Warriors were clambering for his autograph.

In case you need a reminder, Yoshi became an internet hit when he tackled his backyard Ninja Warrior course.

It led to an appearance on Little Big Shots. With Akbar calling his run, Yoshi impressed the audience with his Ninja skills.

But now, Yoshi is four years old. He’s old enough to take on the real competitors. He proved it at FanFest when he raced American Ninja Warriors Drew Drechsel and Joe Moravsky down the inflatable course.

Spoiler alert: He totally defeats them.

It’s great to see Yoshi’s been keeping up with his training! By the time he’s 10, he’ll be one of the best!
