Gold Medal Winning Olympic Gymnast Laurie Hernandez will co-host American Ninja Warrior Junior with Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila on Universal Kids, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment’s network for kids 2-12. This next generation of American Ninja Warrior marks the first time some of the show’s biggest fans can become part of this five-time Emmy nominated worldwide phenomenon. American Ninja Warrior Junior celebrates real kids taking on the iconic course with dedication and skill. Nearly 200 boy and girl Junior Ninjas from across the U.S. will face off on the same Head to Head courses in three age brackets: 9 & 10, 11 & 12, and 13 & 14 year olds. The courses will feature iconic Ninja Warrior obstacles, including Sonic Swing, Tic Toc, Spin Cycle, and the Warped Wall. Each age bracket will be mentored by All Star Ninja Mentors - Kevin Bull, Drew Drechsel, Natalie Duran, Meagan Martin, Najee Richardson, and Barclay Stockett. Three final winners (one per age bracket) will be crowned the first ever American Ninja Warrior Junior Champions. Nikko's show will air on November 3rd!!!
