Three more American Ninja Warrior favorites, two big names, and two new obstacles will all make appearances at this year’s San Antonio qualifying round.
This season of American Ninja Warrior has already given us some newcomers to keep an eye on in Los Angeles. Zhanique Lovett, Anthony Trucks, and Riles Nganga are all coming back for the city finals there. Will San Antonio have the same in its own qualifying course?
According to the schedule, Olympian Jonathan Horton will make his return to the show after last appearing in 2015. Meanwhile, Indy car driver Conor Daly will try his hand at the course for the very first time. As for known names, keep an eye on Daniel Gil, who helped power Team USA to a win in this year’s special; Kacy Catenzaro will again attempt to get through a course; and Brent Steffensen will presumably be one of the last runs of the night.
Who will succeed and who won’t has to depend on the course layout just a little bit. Unfortunately, it’s a matter of piecing everything together based on what we can see from American Ninja Warrior‘s posted videos:
So, the Sky Hooks are the fourth obstacle. First is usually the Floating Steps, and the Warped Wall comes at the end. Time for some more evidence:
The press release says a new Spinning Bridge will also make an appearance, which you can see Catenzaro attempting. You can also see her on Tick Tock. That’s five of six obstacles.

Additionally, this promo appears to hint that both Steffensen and Horton make it to the Warped Wall. Horton appears to be hanging off the top of the wall, in fact, which would be a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it type of spoiler. Will that come true? We’ll have to see tonight.
