Part of the threesome of Ninja friends known as the "Jersey Girlz" (you can't pick a better name if you ask me) did a killer job in the Semifinals course.  You don't get those to-die-for arms unless you work your tail off. This is Rachel's rookie season and she is handling it like a BOSS!

According to American Ninja Warrior:

Ninjas who successfully complete the finals course in their designated region move on to the national finals round in Las Vegas, where they face a multi-stage course with up to 23 obstacles. The ninja who completes all four stages - including the final 75-foot rope climb - takes home a grand prize of $1 million. If no competitor finishes all four stages, the ninja that advances the farthest (and the fastest) on the course, also known as the "last ninja standing," will take home $100,000.

 

I loved watching and cheering for her!  She is the one to watch I'm telling you!  In case you missed it here is Rachel's stellar performance. Go get it Jersey!

The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
