After getting a look at what’s to come in American Ninja Warrior Junior season 2 earlier this week, we can’t wait to see what these amazing athletes are going to do in February! But until then, we’ll take these close calls from season 1. These runs have drama, excitement, and hustle from the moment they start until the moment they hit that buzzer. We love that these kids never give up!
But the best part—besides Matt and Akbar’s reactions, of course—is the sportsmanship. We all know losing isn’t easy, but these kids manage to smile and high-five their worthy opponents anyway!
