Ninjas are known for their perseverance and “never give up” mentality, and Tiana “Sweet T” Webberley is a perfect example of that.

Tiana first appeared on American Ninja Warrior in season 7. She got a wildcard to Las Vegas in season 8 and then did not make it to the National Finals in season 9.

Tiana came out strong in season 10. She made it to the ninth obstacle of the Los Angeles City Finals course and qualified for the Las Vegas National Finals. Unfortunately, Tiana broke her leg in stunt training and wasn’t able to compete. She didn’t share much about the injury, but did post this on Instagram a few months after the episode was filmed:

It was a long journey back to the starting line, but she was, once again, the top female in the Los Angeles City Finals and made it to Vegas.

After City Finals, she said, “I’m very grateful to be back here in one piece. Yeah, just give it all I got out there. I feel ready, I feel strong. I worked hard. I’ve had a lot of great people behind me with rehab, PT, and strength and conditioning. Just getting that muscle back to normal, the bone and muscles, ligaments, everything in the knee back to normal and 100% so that way I can just go and hit a buzzer this year. Hopefully.”

This season, she timed out in Stage One, but I’m sure Tiana will just keep pushing herself and getting closer and closer to that buzzer!
