That’s a wrap on the American Ninja Warrior qualifiers for season 10! Minneapolis was the last city where Ninjas could earn their spot at the National Finals in a few weeks. So WE know who gets there (hehehe) but we can’t tell you.
We couldn’t have asked for a better two nights of taping. It was warm, there was NO RAIN, and it was all-together awesome! Here’s what we can share.
The location was just outside the US Bank Stadium. We think it’s going to be one of the best backdrops we’ve seen on the show. The show had access to the screens to make some epic on-site graphics.
Looking back on these past few days I am overwhelmed with thankfulness. Thankful for my family, thankful for my friends, and thankful for this opportunity to do what I love on this stage! What an amazing experience to perform in front of the home crowd on American Ninja Warrior. Make sure to check out the Minneapolis qualifier episode on NBC later this summer.
One thing we did learn about Minneapolis, the sunset was much later than in the other cities. Kristine Leahy shared in her Instagram story that the show had to wait till later in the evening to get going.
Limited time to film meant everyone had to stay focused. That’s the only reason Matt and Akbar didn’t spot you, Kristine!
After getting bumped by the endless rain in Philadelphia, Joe Moravsky FINALLY got to run the course.
He was joined by a league of talented athletes.
You’re not seeing double, there’s two of me in this photo!!! Thank you to all of the fans and friends in Minneapolis for coming out and watching the taping of @ninjawarrior season 10!!! I can’t say much but I’m excited for everyone to see this season of #americanninjawarrior which begins airing May 30th on @nbc!!! Always grateful for the opportunity to run the course and try my best! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard this weekend to make everything possible, you know who you are ☺️❤️!!! #anwx #minneapolis thanks @carlfan for snagging this photo of me!
That's a wrap for the Minneapolis Regional of American Ninja Warrior! I can't say how I did, so you'll just have to watch and find out July 2nd on NBC! The fundraiser will still be going until that time, so get your pledges in! Link is in my bio! Thank you so much to everybody for the support! Knowing we're helping dogs together makes this whole adventure mean so much, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity! For info on how to purchase this year's shirt featuring Angus, click on the tag.
What a weekend! Competed on #ANW10 this weekend and was completely overwhelmed by the love and support backing me while I took on the course. An athlete can only go so far on their own, I know I wouldn’t be where I’m at without you all! Thank you thank you to everyone who came out to support me and to everyone who supports me from afar. I feel truly #blessed and overwhelmed to have such an amazing community around me! #grateful #family #friends #ninjalife #ninjawarrior #obstacles
And In 3, 2, 1..... I am sure lucky to have had this opportunity. I got to see friends, people I look up to who inspire me that I look forward to seeing every year that I am lucky enough to compete. I couldn’t thank my family and Ninja family enough that came out to support and cheer on the Utah Ninjas, it means the world to me I’ll remember this one for the rest of my life . . . #anw10 #minneapolis #thepossibilities #goals #trusttheprocess #healthylifestyles #surgesupplements #larissacottle #pushyourlimits #catchyourdreams #utahstrong #utahwomenathletes #slcdreads #dreadlocks #mommyninjas
Of course, the best thing about any location is the fans and Minneapolis was no different.
Without fail, I always leave the @ninjawarrior set with a full heart. ❤️ You know all of the inspiring people you see on the show who are battling major, chronic life obstacles? After meeting them in person and watching them give the course all they’ve got, I feel inspired, with my acute life obstacles put in perspective. As for how I did, I’m not allowed to say! (But I can say that I did not re-injure my calf, so that’s a relief.) This season of American enjoyer starts this Wednesday, May 30 on NBC. The Minneapolis region is the last region, so it will air in six weeks, I believe, but be sure to watch all of the awesome ninjas all season long!
American Ninja Warrior stops in Vegas in just a couple of weeks for the grand finale!
