As the sport of Ninja Warrior continues to grow, more and more international competitions are rising in prominence. Now, a league that’s local to the USA has become a qualifier for an World Championship.
Both the State Games of America and the UNAA World Series Finals are official qualifiers for Ninja OCR World Championships held in Moscow, Russia, August of this year.
World OCR is, “the international governing body and sole competent authority for obstacle sports and related disciplines worldwide. We are an independent association composed of national member federations in more than 80 countries.”
There are two ways Ninja OCR athletes can qualify for the Ninja OCR World Championships.
One is taking part in the State Games of America, which recently added Ninja Warrior-style competitions to their roster.
Ninjas can also qualify for the international competition through the UNAA (Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association) World Series Finals. The top two Pro Men and Women will qualify for Team USA at the Ninja OCR World Championships, and 3rd place will become an alternate.
Between the two events, six total athletes and six alternates will represent Team USA in Russia.
