What you didn’t see: Kansas City Qualifiers

The Broken Pipes and Crank It Up worked together to create a deadly combo.

Fernando Leon/NBC

The American Ninja Warrior Kansas City Qualifiers were all about resilience. Ninjas like Jimmy Choi and Kyle Shulze shared stories of overcoming perceived limitations. Jelani Allen stayed determined and focused through the walk on line and through his heart-pounding run. Lance Pekus burst back on the scene after a rough season eight.

They all had to stay resilient against an unforgiving course. Only ten Ninjas would be able to make it to the buzzer, the lowest number so far this season. Looking at all the run results, we get a picture of what a one-two punch the third and fourth obstacles created!

Here are some stats regarding what there wasn’t time to show on this episode.
