Once I saw American Ninja Warrior on NBC I was hooked. I train at Ninja Intensity every single day unless I'm out at a competition. Some of my biggest accomplishments are:
last man standing ANW 13
back to back UBW Grand Champion
1st Place UNAA World Finals
3rd Place UNX Finals
2nd Place Next Level Ninja Games
2nd Place Season 2 American Ninja Warrior Jr
Last Man Standing Season 13 of American Ninja Warrior.
I started doing parkour seven years ago after watching American ninja warrior. From there, I started competing regularly in all types of comps all over the country and have been doing that for 4 years now. I go to multiple gyms such as Dexterity Depot and Kinetic Ninja Warrior once a week, to train with a lot of the Mid-Atlantic ninjas. Some accomplishments are being a semifnalist on ANWJR, competing on season 13 of ANW, placing 4th at NNL finals, and 3rd at UNAA finals.
Hi! I’m Isabella Wakeham! I’ve been training since I was 10 at Iron Sports Gym in Houston Texas. I competed on Anw Jr Season 1, and American Ninja Warrior Season 13 alongside my brother Isaiah & other Bucket Athletes. I was the top female in qualifying and hope to do the same in semi finals. Outside of the show I love competing locally and nationally and some of my achievements include 2nd place PRO female at the UNAA World Championship in 2019. I’m also a student at the highly exclusive private boarding school, The Jake Mick Murray School for the Outrageously Gifted and Wildly Talented.

I’m 30, from Oakland, Maine. My favorite obstacle is the cargo net HAHA just kidding... it’s the double dipper. My favorite ninjas are Chris DiGangi ️, Jon Alexis - we’ve been friends since I was 15 and he’s the reason I started ninja! We drove 12 hours from Maine to go to a ninja comp at Alternate Route. Never trained on a single obstacle . The only other sport I was competitive in was Track, competed D1 in college and competed at Jr Nationals and NCAA nationals.
I live in Castle Rock, Colorado and I am a proud member of Team Ninja Intensity. I began my ninja journey with a local competition in 2017 and have been competing non stop and traveling to different gyms around the country ever since. I love the sport of Ninja and helping others train and compete, especially my brother. I was very fortunate to have competed on ANWJR season 1 and becoming 2019 UNAA and State Games of America champion. Excited to be a part of Bucket of Chalk!
I am 16 years old, live in Thompsons Station, Tennessee and I've been competing in Ninja for the past 3 years.

I train on my backyard course everyday and am a proud member of Team Ninja Intensity! I love my ninja friends around the country and enjoy spending time with them any chance I can get!

Hi I’m Avery! I’ve been doing ninja for 3 years and was a competitive gymnast before I started ninja! I competed on American Ninja Warrior Jr. Season 2 and in the past 2 NNL Finals. I train mostly at iCORE Fitness but I go down to Centercourt often. If I had to pick a favorite competition it would definitely be UBW. When I’m not doing ninja I do lots of handstands and flips!
