The third season of the National Ninja League came to a close this weekend (February 24 and 25) with their World Championships, held at Ninja Quest Fitness in Marietta, Georgia.

The number one positions went to American Ninja Warrior Drew Drechsel, and Australian Ninja Warrior Olivia Vivian. Drew is a famous Ninja Warrior who has been wow-ing fans for years. Olivia is new to the US Ninja scene, but she’s quickly made a name for herself at competitions like this and the Wolfpack Ninja Tour.

Second and third places in both divisions were dominated by familiar competitors.
