March 8 is International Women’s Day! It’s “a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.” The achievements of women on American Ninja Warrior are vast and have moved so many, both women and men, to pursue their dreams on and off the course.

To take part in the day, we wanted to share a handful of highlights of those incredible accomplishments. Honestly, it was a hard task! There are so, SO many to choose from. We’ve selected 10, but we want to hear what your favorites are.

What’s your favorite/most memorable run from a female athlete on Ninja Warrior? Tell us in the comments below!

We can’t overlook Kacy Catanzaro beating the Warped Wall in season six.

Jessie Graff opened a whole new door when she beat Stage One at the National Finals.

Jesse Labreck was the first female rookie to qualify for the National Finals.

Allyssa Beird established herself as a legend with her Stage One finish.
