Australian Olivia Vivian has been steadily making a name for herself in the Ninja community over the past few years. She has competed in the first three seasons of Australian Ninja Warrior and became the first female to complete the semifinal course. In SASUKE Vietnam 4 in 2018, she was the last female competitor standing. This past October, Olivia had an impressive showing at the Colorado Ninja Challenge and took the top spot for women.

The gymnast had a disappointing debut in USA vs. the World last year with a surprising fall on the first obstacle, but made up for it this year by crushing Stage One. In doing so, Olivia became the 4th woman to ever conquer Stage One.

In a recent interview, Olivia said she was “so thankful to be given the opportunity to return and have a shot at redemption, so when I finished Stage One it was a reminder to myself that self-belief, persistence, and hard work pay off.”

Olivia helped keep her team ahead of Team Europe, which made the final rope climb a showdown between Team Australia and Team USA. Ultimately, Bryson Klein beat Adam Rayl in the climb and Team Australia took home the trophy this year. Read the full recap here.
