Katie Bone, at the age of 16, won the Ninja Warrior’s Women Championship in one of the most amazing displays of power and ability I have ever seen.
And she is a type 1 diabetic.
I have watched film of her winning rock climbing contests, and at one point I turned to Kris and said, “If Katie gets to stage four, she will win this thing. She goes up a wall better than Spider-Man could.”
Stage four is a sixty-foot tower they have to climb twice to win. I was right.
She is an amazing example to all of us to not let life issues and health get in your way. Watch the entire competition if you get a chance. Just amazing.
But here is her final run, second time up the tower. Her first time up she made it look like she was just flying. She didn’t even give the defending champion a chance. This final run was against another 16-year-old on Stage Four of the major course here in Vegas. Wow, just wow.
