Castle Rock boy wins back-to-back Ninja world championship titles

About me

I’m 12 years old and from Castle Rock. I will be starting eighth grade this school year and attending K-12 online this year so, hopefully, I can attend more Ninja competitions around the country.

Being a Ninja athlete

To put it simply, Ninja is obstacle-course racing, but unlike OCR races and Mud runs it’s more upper body endurance and balance obstacles without the long-distance running. I got involved in Ninja a little over two years ago while watching American Ninja Warrior on TV and thinking “I could do that.”

Winning a world championship

This year at the UNAA (Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association) there were athletes from Australia, Europe and Canada along with the U.S. The talent from the athletes this year was amazing, so taking first place was unbelievable and winning back-to-back championships made it even better.

My hobbies

I do pretty much live and breathe Ninja, but when I’m not training or competing for Ninja, my second passion is wakeboarding. I have been wakeboarding or doing water sports since I was 3 years old. I also like to hang out with my friends and do other normal 12-year-old stuff.

My mantra

Send IT!!!
