Who says women don't have upper body strength?

  • Actress, stuntwoman and athlete Jessie Graff shredded the “American Ninja Warrior” course last night on NBC, advancing to the Las Vegas final and becoming the fourth woman in American Ninja Warrior history to complete the “Warped Wall” obstacle.

    She was also one of the few competitors to conquer the tricky “Hourglass Drop,” in which the athletes had to inch across two hourglass-shaped shelves hanging in the air and execute a perfect trampoline bounce in the middle.

    Graff eventually failed the “Clear Climb,” but made it further than anyone who went before her and joins 14 other athletes, including Venice winner Nicholas Coolridge, to qualify for the final in Las Vegas.
