Watch This 5’1″ Bro Set An ‘American Ninja Warrior’ Record

Jonathan Horton may only be 5 feet 1 inches tall, but that didn’t stop him from an amazing run through the American Ninja Warrior course at the Houston qualifiers earlier this week. A Team USA gymnast who won the silver medal at the 2008 Beijing games, Horton tore through the course at breakneck speed. He became the shortest man ever to scale the Warped Wall, making American Ninja Warrior history.

Pretty damn impressive for 5’1″. Definitely has a competitive advantage with a short height an massive upper body strength.

Now I want to see someone who is 6’5″ and 230-pounds of shredded muscle complete the course with a similar time.
