There’s a little over a month left before the National Ninja League will host its World Championship competition in Hartford, CT, February 15-18. For the past several months, competitions have taken place in gyms across the US, with the top competitors qualifying to take part in the Championships. Depending on how many NNL competitions the athlete has taken part in, and their ranking, they’ve been accruing points. The points determine their rank in the league heading into the final competition as well as their run order on that day.
Over the National Ninja League’s four seasons, it has become one hub of the Ninja Warrior community. Past Championship winners include elite athletes such as Geoff Britten, Jesse Labreck, Allyssa Beird, Drew Drechsel, and (Australian Ninja Warrior) Olivia Vivian.
