Brittany Hanks is through to her first National Finals

She had to defeat an obstacle that previously injured her to get there.

Season 10 of American Ninja Warrior is Brittany Hanks’ third year on the show. Each time, she’s gone farther than before. In season eight, she fell in the Oklahoma City Qualifiers. Season nine, she made it to the Sky Hooks of the San Antonio City Finals.

During the Dallas Qualifiers, Brittany went out on the Tuning Forks, but still moved to the City Finals. There, she took the second place for the women and is heading to her first National Finals.

Brittany looked confident through the starting two obstacles.

The first test came at the Bouncing Spider. Brittany injured her knee while testing the obstacle in season nine and was still wearing her brace.

When she was through it safely, Brittany sat down in relief, waving to her friends and family to let them know she was okay.

But it was the next obstacle, the Broken Bridge, that ended Brittany’s run when she stepped slightly off center on one of the panels.

But that was still far enough to send Brittany to her first National Finals! She’ll be facing Stage One in a few weeks.
