Young ninjas step up a grade
THE next generation of ninja warriors have jumped, climbed and swung their way through a competition in Bibra Lake. Now some are heading to the big time.
THE next generation of ninja warriors have jumped, climbed and swung their way through a competition at Bibra Lake’s The Simulation Centre.
More than 50 participants aged six and older took part in the qualifying event in the hope of earning selection to the Australian Ninja Games and Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association World Finals.
Competitors were asked to complete the course, which included quintuple steps, vaults, a pegboard, warped walls and a slackline, earning a score based on their run time and points achieved on each obstacle.
The Simulation Centre’s Justine Mamootil said the event had been a big success, with 16 competitors earning the opportunity to be a part of October’s Australian Ninja Games.
She said the popularity of shows such as Australian Ninja Warrior made inclusion of a similar course at their centre a no-brainer.
“There are no other facilities in the southern area for families to access such a course,” she said.
