Remember the name Kacy Catanzaro. She has just become the first woman ever in history to advance to the finals of the show American Ninja Warrior. If you have ever watched the show, then you know what an incredible feat this is, especially for a tiny little 100-pound, 5-foot woman. And yet that is EXACTLY what Catanzaro has done.
For those who have never seen it, American Ninja Warrior makes even Ironman competitors look like slouches. Contestants must complete insane obstacle courses that test every muscle in their bodies. It takes agility, speed, endurance, and incredible arm, core, and leg strength just to get to the competition. Awesome athletes fail. Regularly.
And that's why Kacy's historical run is so amazing. Even if you don't watch the show, this is so inspiring, both for women and for anyone who has ever been told they "can't." See for yourself:
