A FERMANAGH and Omagh District Council employee who appeared on last weekend’s Ninja Warrior on ITV making it into the semi finals has said the show is “what I have been waiting for my whole life.”
Ryan Tracey, a performance improvement officer for the Council who last year starred on Britain’s Got Talent, said it was an “exciting opportunity.”
“I used to watch all the shows on TV such as Ninja Warrior, Unbeatable Banzuki, Total Wipeout and always said that I could do them no problem. I never had the confidence to apply for any of them,” he said.
Described as “the toughest obstacle course on television”, Ninja Warrior features a group of hopeful competitors as they push themselves to the limit to complete the ultimate challenge.
“As a child I climbed trees and walls and was always jumping, swinging and climbing anything I could. I have always believed that I was born to be a Ninja and I have been waiting on my chance to prove it,” Mr. Tracey told The Impartial Reporter.
The show is hosted by Ben Shephard, Rochelle Humes and Chris ‘Kammy’ Kamara.
“To have had a chance to run the most difficult obstacle course on TV, against some of the most elite athletes in the world including Sebastian Foucane, a French man who founded Parkour and was in Casino Royale with Daniel Craig was a great experience,” said Mr. Tracey.
