Utah Father, Son Hit Buzzers For First Time On ‘American Ninja Warrior’
ST. GEORGE, Utah — A father and son team from Utah became the first duo of its kind to both hit buzzers on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior.
The sport became a family affair eight years ago when dad, Brian Beckstrand, realized this was a sport his whole family could participate in.
“In traditional sports like basketball, younger athletes aren’t competing against older athletes, but in the Ninja World, that’s not always the case,” said Beckstrand.
Monday night, Brian’s son Kai had the fastest time of the evening.
Two of Kai’s siblings recently competed on American Ninja Warrior Junior.
The family now owns two gyms in St. George where people can train for these competitions.
