This Ninja isn’t letting a foot injury slow him down

Nelson Thachuk is staying positive through his healing process.

In December, Nelson Thachuk fell off the Salmon Ladder and partially tore his anterior talofibular ligament in his ankle, requiring him to wear a boot. But this Ninja is still hoping season 12 will be his rookie season on American Ninja Warrior, so he isn’t letting the foot injury slow down his training.

First, he got right back on the Salmon Ladder.

Now he’s embracing the #BootLife to work on the core/upper body obstacles, like laches...

...and grip strength!

It’s easy to get down in the dumps when you have an injury and feel like you can’t train, but if you can get creative like Nelson, anything is possible!
