6 times Ninjas laughed in the face of gravity

LOL. Good try, gravity.

Danell Leyva's incredible Stage One save flashed past us this morning on our daily stroll around the internet. We immediately stopped and watched it twice. It’s a thing of beauty. It’s a thing that looks like it shouldn’t be possible given the laws of gravity as we understand them.

And it’s not an isolated thing.

American Ninja Warrior competitors seem to have a knack for defying gravity. When their eyes on the prize, NOTHING is going to stand in their way. Take a look back at six times the Ninjas said, “Nope” to gravity.

Of course, when Danell Leyva said, “Lol. Gravity is cute.”

When David Campbell should have fallen on the Lunatic Ledges but was like, “Thanks, but no thanks.”

When gravity asked Maggi Thorne to have a seat and she said, “Hard pass on that.”

When Kevin Bull was like, “Hey, the only thing you need to do to beat Cannonball Alley is to ignore gravity for a quick sec.”

When gravity tried to send Morgan “Moose” Wright a message (twice) and he responded with, “What? I didn’t hear you.”

When gravity was like, “Careful there, Robert Ing,” and he was all, “Quiet down, I’m working here!”

We know there are so many other epic gravity-defying moments! So jump down to the comments and share your favorites.
