American Ninja Warrior Season 13 Episode 4 Recap
In the fourth episode of ‘American Ninja Warrior’ season 13, titled ‘Qualifiers 4,’ the first ninja to begin the night is rookie Stephen Edwards, who fails to clear the fifth balance obstacle, followed by 15-year-old Addy Herman meeting the same fate. The Pretzel Twist noticeably becomes the hardest obstacle for the ninjas in the fifth round of qualifiers. Moreover, boxing champ Melissa falls on the first obstacle, just like other female boxers to have entered the competition.
As most of the ninjas carry competitive fervor in their hearts, some of them just want to create unforgettable moments in the show with their best friends hoping to clear the course together. Sure enough, 17-year-old Jay Lewis becomes the first finisher of the night while his buddy Blake, unfortunately, falls on Air Surfer. The second pair comprises Paul Fisher and his best friend Ivan King, both hailing from the Amish community. Both of them fall short of setting up a good timing needed to advance to the next round.
The next ninja Nate Hansen breaks societal limitations imposed on him because of his short stature of 5 feet 2 inches and becomes the second finisher with impeccable timing. The third finisher is Adam Rayl, former gymnast and six-time veteran, followed by several other ninjas completing the course, namely Sean Bryan, David Campbell, teenager Caiden Madzelan, and Ethan Swanson along with Jack Murray hailing as the fastest ninja. We also get our first woman finisher, Meagan Martin, winner of the ANW women’s championship.
