Allyssa Beird isn’t a rookie this season, but the American Ninja Warrior community is definitely taking serious note of her this year.
In season eight, Allyssa was one of the four women who qualified for the Philadelphia City Finals. Since last year, she’s become the women’s champion of the National Ninja League, and was part of Joe Moravsky’s Storm Team on Team Ninja Warrior. They won that championship as well.
She’s carrying that momentum into season nine now. In her Cleveland Qualifying run, she became the first woman to hit a buzzer this season. Back for her City Finals run, Allyssa got off to a rough start but still churned out a an impressive run, displaying not just her strength but her mental grit.
