On the very tough course of last night’s episode of American Ninja Warrior, competitor Jimmy Choi proved that winning isn’t everything.
“You don’t always have to hit the buzzer to be a winner,” host Matt Iseman said.
Choi, a tech consultant from Bolingbrook, Illinois, made an amazing run through the course by any measure. The 41-year-old leapt and dived his way to the broken pipes round, an obstacle that took out the most competitors that night. In any circumstance, this was an achievement, but Choi was especially inspiring by competing for the disease he battles.
