It doesn’t seem like anything is going to clip Ethan Swanson’s wings this season. He dominated the American Ninja Warrior courses in Cincinnati, taking the fastest completion time in both the Qualifiers and City Finals and ensuring two trips to the Power Tower. While he doesn’t have the coveted Safety Pass from the City Finals round, he doesn’t seem to need it.
Back for his third time at the National Finals, Ethan hopped, skipped, and jumped through the Stage One course. His overall time to the buzzer put him in second place in that field of finishers. If anyone should feel pretty confident heading into Stage Two, it’s Ethan. Check out his Stage One run above!
