Castle Rock teen wins $100,000 on 'American Ninja Warrior'

Kaden Lebsack competed in first season allowing teen participants

Posted

While he timed out before he could reach the $1 million prize mark, Castle Rock teen Kaden Lebsack’s first year competing on "American Ninja Warrior" ended with an impressive performance and a $100,000 prize for strength and agility.

The 15-year-old continued to turn heads throughout the 13th season of the NBC show, where teenagers were allowed to compete with adults for the first time. In all, 18 teenagers competed on the show.

In the Sept. 13 finale, Lebsack appeared to be poised to take the $1 million grand prize as he zoomed through stages two and three. In the fourth stage, Lebsack timed out on the ropes to miss the big prize.

After the rookie sensation took the show by storm all season, Lebsack concluded the season by thanking his coach, John Maul. Lebsack has been training with Maul for the last five years.

Competing on the NBC show has been Lebsack’s dream since he was 10. He can qualify to compete on future seasons of the long-running show.
