While we’ve all been sitting around talking about female superheroes, a gymnast named Kacy Catanzaro decided to go out and just become the real thing. I mean, okay, she’s not fighting crime yet, but that has to be the next step, right?
Apparently there’s a show I’ve never heard of called American Ninja Warrior, in which beefy competitors run crazy intense obstacle courses. Today Catanzaro became the first woman to qualify for the final round. This is especially impressive not just because of gender strength differences (discuss and argue at your leisure), but because of her size. At 5 feet and 100 pounds, she’s not even Anna Kendrick-sized. So in certain sections of the course, where most dudes can, say, swing from thing to thing (technical terms), Kacy have to LEAP like a f*cking beast.
Now, I don’t want to hear any excuses about not having 7 minutes for a video. Just watch it, watch the whole damn thing.
For anyone who has ever made a derisive comment about Gal Godot’s size, we have been solidly proven wrong…
