Kacy Catanzaro, a 5-foot-tall, 100-pound former Towson University gymnast, is the first woman ever to qualify for the final round of NBC’s "American Ninja Warrior."

"We are seeing one of the greatest competitors — man or woman — we have ever seen in 'America Ninja Warrior,'" co-host Matt Iseman said during Catanzaro's amazing run through the physically demanding obstacle course.

Catanzaro completed the “American Ninja Warrior” city course in Dallas on Monday, qualifying for the Las Vegas finals and Mount Midoriyama.

In an “American Ninja Warrior” interview posted on YouTube, Catanzaro said she started gymnastics at age 5 and turned to obstacle course running after her gymnastics career ended a couple of years ago.

"'American Ninja Warrior' and obstacle course running in general has definitely been this big new thing that has given me this rush that I need, that I’ve missed so much,” Catanzaro said.

As she made her run through the grueling course, Catanzano's boyfriend and trainer Brent Steffensen was cheering her on from the sidelines. After she finished the course, Steffensen climbed the scaffolding to congratulate Catanzano.

"I did it!" she tells him.

Catanzaro thanked her fans on Twitter.



The accomplishment impressed Twitter users, with the hashtag #mightykacy trending.
