The American Ninja Warrior Indianapolis Qualifying and Finals courses were dominated by the Wolfpack. The training team from Colorado sent Meagan Martin, Brian Arnold and Ian Dory to the National Finals.

But in order to get there, they faced the Rolling Log, an obstacle designed to scramble your brains. This was then followed by the Disc Runner and the brand new Circuit Board.

In the end though, it was still the Hourglass Drop that would prove to be a real challenge, confirming the trend that any obstacle with a trampoline would prove to be a struggle this season.

Full recap of the Indianapolis Finals here.
