Owensboro's Own American Ninja Warrior

Its something most people say they would never try and many watching American Ninja Warrior from home think those who compete are crazy.
 
However, Owensboro native John Murray Adams had a different reaction.
 
"I always thought to myself I feel like I can do this" said Jon Murray Adams. "I'm not going to know until I try it let me just put myself out there and try these obstacles and see what happens."
 
In 2016 he auditioned for city qualifiers in Indianapolis but fell short of qualifying for finals.
 
However he came back to face the course again. His season nine audition had the chance of airing nationally Monday night.
 
A crowd of friends and family gathered at Maloneys restaurant in Owensboro to watch the episode and potentially cheer him on.
 
"Last year I was definitely more intimidated, the obstacles looked pretty tough. This year I knew what to expect so I wasn't as intimidated" said Adams. "I really did my homework as to watching people fail on it and do well on it."
 
Many people ask him how he prepared for the unexpected obstacles ahead of him and its not your average work out. He says he trained at his local YMCA and did his best recreate the obstacles in the show to practice.
 
Though Adams did not get air time on Monday he says he was close to qualifying but did not make it to the next round.
