OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Ninja Warrior training gyms and competitions are increasingly popular in the metro, but how do young local athletes stack up against the rest of the world?

About 40 area kids had plenty to flex about after competing in the 2nd Annual World Ninja Athlete Games, here’s how it works.

All week long, ending today, athletes in various age groups competed on the same obstacle course design at gyms around the world to see how they stack up against warriors across the globe, from China, Australia, Finland, and of course across the United States.

”This is a course that you can train on in advance,” said Kelli Amaro of Omaha’s Midwest Warrior Academy. “Gyms will set it up a month in advance so you can train on your pegboard, train on your rope climb, and these athletes are knocking it out of the park.”
