Local athletes may be featured on NBC show

NBC will air the St. Louis regional qualifying round of its American Ninja Warriors competition from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. today.
The competitors include three from Findlay: Jim Steffen, Jen Hochstettler and Christy Santistevan. All train at Steffen’s gym, XT Fitness. Contestants are selected from an application and video submission. Only a few hundred are selected from thousands of entries.
NBC does not release the names of contestants who will be featured in tonight’s broadcast, and not all contestants will see air time, but it’s possible that the Findlay contestants will be seen on tonight’s show.
Qualifying rounds were also held in Los Angeles, Dallas, St. Louis, Miami and Denver. Competitors who successfully complete a city’s finals course will earn a trip to Las Vegas for the final round of competition.
