It's Official! Jessie Graff Is America's First Female "Ninja Warrior" to Complete Stage 1
"Jessie [Graff]'s going with the green superhero outfit and she'll need to be super human. No woman has finished stage 1 and this course has been brutal tonight, taking out some of the very best," the male announcer said as he introduced her at the "American Ninja Warrior" National Finals.
But the key word there is "some." While some of the very best were taken out in the course, Graff proved to be one of the best to make it through. In fact, with the crowd chanting her name as if "she's a rockstar," Graff became the first woman to complete stage 1 of the event.
Watch as she effortlessly "redefines strong" with a comfortable 12.39 seconds left:
