The historic season of American Ninja Warrior continued Monday night when Meagan Martin tried her hand at the first leg of the ANW finals course. Martin, like Kacy Catanzaro, was one of three women to make history by completing the stage one course this season. Unlike Catanzaro, however, Martin faltered in the semis. But that didn’t stop ANW from inviting her, along with a few other competitors, to compete on the finals course, which includes Mt. Midoriyama.
Although she eventually ran out of time, Martin didn’t fail at any obstacle on the course and when she became the first woman to ever complete the Jumping Spider obstacle, Akbar Gbaja-Biamila lost his fucking mind, screaming “I said so. I said so. YOU GO GIRL!”
Get a grip, Akbar.
