American Ninja Warrior called in Joe Moravsky, Michelle Warnky, Jon Alexis Jr., and more fantastic athletes to challenge the Cleveland course.
From the opening segment on, American Ninja Warrior‘s Cleveland qualifying round put women in the spotlight. But the course, as always, was merciless. Woman or man, newcomer or long-time ninja, it’s all about they tackle the obstacles.
Tonight’s were the Floating Steps, the Rolling Log, Razor’s Edge, the Ring Jump, the I-Beam Gap, and the Warped Wall. As we noted in our preview, the I-Beam Gap involves a jump, but it’s a full six-and-a-half foot jump, just in case you thought it would be too easy.
The results of tonight’s shown runs are as follows:
- College student Michael Nowoslawski: Missed the jump off of the Ring Jump.
- Physical therapist Shanon Paglieri: Rolled off the Rolling Log.
- Fitness instructor Mark Ribeiro: The I-Beam Gap proved too much.
- Nursing student Annika Nieshalla: Didn’t survive the Ring Jump.
- Gym owner Michelle Warnky: Surprisingly went down at the Ring Jump.

- NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.: Didn’t make it past the Ring Jump.
