Geoff Britten was the first American to reach the top of Mount Midoriyama and the first American Ninja Warrior. In an ironic twist, there was another competitor, Isaac Caldiero would beat Geoff’s time to become the official 2015 ANW winner. Geoff was one of the favorites to win this year’s competition, however his dream was cut short when he didn’t qualify in the semifinals to move on to the finals. Not only did Geoff not qualify, but he went out on the first stage in just 5 seconds. Everyone was stunned, including his little daughter. She was so heart broken and started crying.
