Sioux Falls Woman to Compete on NBC’s ‘American Ninja Warrior’ Monday Night
A Sioux Falls mom ran a grueling obstacle course on Mother's Day in Orlando Fl. for the NBC show 'American Ninja Warrior'. Rachel (Munson) Person, a ’96 Augustana nursing graduate and mother of five, runs up walls, crosses rolling logs, and tries to keep her balance through an obstacle course that tested strength and agility.
Person was selected out of 50,000 people by American Ninja Warrior to run the course. NBC released a sneak-peak photo of Rachel in competition on the show's website.
She can’t say how she did until after the episode airs, but those who successfully complete the finals course in their designated region move on to the national finals round in Las Vegas, where the winner will take home a grand prize of $1 million.
Her episode airs at 7 p.m. Central on Monday, June 22.Rachel (Munson) Person. Good luck!
