Hats off to these wonderful competitors; participating at all in "Ninja
Warrior" requires a great deal of courage, along with great strength, great
flexibility, and great motivation. That said, I do somewhat
question Ryan's statement that "[c]ompeting honestly was just fun. If
you watch my runs, it brought a smile to my face just being up there doing what
I love doing." The whole point of "Ninja Warrior" is to put people
who think they're in shape through the kind of ordeal that persuades them
they're not as fit as they thought. It's probably not "just
fun" in the days following that ordeal, when competitors are nursing their
many bruises (and sometimes much worse).
I don't know them personally but they appear to be "beautiful"
people, inside and out. What a wonderful family!!!
The family that plays together stays together! It's great to see them
having fun doing whatever they choose to do!
