Najee Richardson will not be swayed from his goals

He’s fallen before, but he doesn’t let that get into his head.

Najee Richardson is a perfect picture of what can happen with dedication and a positive attitude. After an injury ended Najee’s gymnastics career, he picked himself up and started training for American Ninja Warrior.

In his first season (season seven), he experienced an early fall in the Pittsburgh Qualifier. But that cold start to his Ninja career didn’t deter him. He stayed focused and returned for season eight stronger than ever, making it all the way to the second stage of the National Finals. In season nine, he was one of only three Ninjas to make it to Stage Three.

Najee has quickly risen to the top of the Ninja Warrior field and we can’t wait to see what he does next! Learn more about his career on the card above.
