Olivia Vivian completes Ninja Warrior course

Sadly, former Olympic gymnast Olivia Vivian made a mistake and missed completing the run in the Final. The only female competitor who qualified, she’d hoped to beat the men.

That’s a shame. In the qualifier she was the only woman in Australian history to finish.

She trains and coaches in her backyard in Spokane, Washington. Her husband and 3 children all compete.

I observed one open class last night — and got a chance to try the warped wall myself.

Sandy Zimmerman, a full-time teacher, is an excellent coach.
