Lebsack reaches 'American Ninja Warrior' semifinals

Castle Rock teen will be on the national stage again July 19

Posted

No matter what the outcome, Castle Rock teen Kaden Lebsack has performed well on the NBC hit competition show "American Ninja Warrior." The show, now in its 13th season, is allowing teenagers to compete with adults for the first time.

Lebsack, 15, is scheduled to appear on the show's semifinal round on July 19.

Lebsack's mom, Brandi Lebsack, said her son continues to do a great job as he moves through the competition. The show had qualifiers in Tacoma, Washington, where he clocked the show's fastest course time, she said.

In a June 7 airing, announcers were amazed with how easily Lebsack glided through the course. Announcers said Lebsack is the primary reason the series dropped age restrictions this year. Lebsack has consistently performed well against adult contestants.

Brandi said if he does well in the July 19 competition, he will move on to the finals round in Las Vegas.

Lebsack started training for the national stage when he was 10. Last year, Lebsack advanced to the semifinals of the "American Ninja Warrior" junior competition.

This year, in preparing for the national competition, Lebsack just competing is a dream come true.

Will Lebsack be the Season 13 Ninja Warrior champion? Only time will tell.
