Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.
I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.
I was watching this with my brother and our roommate the other day and they were just sitting there like “shes not going to make it shes too tiny” and then there were those post things that she had to hang onto and go across and they kept saying “nope she can’t do it” so when she made it I just turned to them and said “you were saying?”
i think people forget that you really don’t need height when it comes to this challenge. The original sasuke contestants (and winners) weren’t anywhere close to 6ft tall. Anyone who is a gymnast or has been one for most of their lives wouldn’t even bat an eyelash at her accomplishment. People really underestimate gymnasts (even more so, female ones)
