Jessie Graff has become the first woman to complete stage one of American Ninja Warrior – and she did it in style.

Jessie, a stuntwoman on ‘Supergirl’, absolutely killed her run, completing the course with 12.39 seconds to spare in a time of 2 minutes 7.61 seconds.

I knew I could do it, but I didn’t know if I would.

Anytime I caught myself thinking about the magnitude of how my life might change if I completed the course, I would immediately redirect my focus to calculating and memorizing the strategies for each specific obstacle.

I’m excited to complete Stage one as an athlete, not just a woman, because it is a deceptively challenging course that has taken out hundreds of stronger athletes than me, male and female.

I’m grateful that it came together for me on the right night, and looking forward to seeing more women hit that buzzer in the future.

Congratulations Jessie – you nailed it!
