Team USA: Team USA will feature ninjas Drew Drechsel, Joe Moravsky, Najee “The Phoenix” Richardson and Sean Bryan. During last year’s show, Jessie Graff became the only woman to complete the Stage Two course. Drew Drechsel was able to knock out an impressive run during Stage Three, and led Team USA to a win.
Team Europe: Team Europe poses the biggest threat to Team USA. They were the winner in Season 7, and are back this year, thirsting for victory. The team consists of Team Captain Sean McColl, Alexander Mars, Ossur Eiriksfoss, and Sergio Verdasco. Speaking to American Ninja Warrior, McColl said,”Because this is my fourth year on American Ninja Warrior: USA vs. the World I believe I bring a lot of experience and I can also do Stages, 2, 3 and 4. The fact that in the first year Team Europe won and the past two seasons we haven’t won it really makes us really eager to bring back the trophy.”
Team Asia: American Ninja Warrior was originally based off the Japanese reality competition show Sasuke, so these competitors will know how to bring it. The group consists of team captain Tomohiro Kawaguchi, Yusuke Morimoto, Thuc Le, and Yosua Zalukhu.
Team Latin America: Team Latin America is a fairly new team; they made their debut last year. The group consists of team captain Danee Marmolejo, Karl Fow, Marco Jubes, and Sebatien Prieto. The latter two are climbers. The team captain tells American Ninja Warrior Nation, “We have two new team members, Marco and Sebastian. They’re two climbers. They’re internationally known. And they have won competitions. They’ve traveled the world, and they’re really complete athletes. Their strength and core can help us a lot in Stag Two and Stage Three.”
