American Ninja Warrior: Lylah MacCall finishes course dad build

Posted on

It’s never too early to start training to become an American Ninja Warrior, and if you don’t believe that, just ask this little girl who now has an obstacle course inspired by the game show in her backyard.

Gavin MacCall, the dad who built the course, explained in a Facebook post that his daughter Lylah spent a good amount of time sharpening her skills on the playground and in their house before he decided to take things to the next level and give her a course of her own.

“Her practicing everyday on the playgrounds around our neighborhood has really given her the strength for this course,” he wrote. “This [year’s] course got much more involved and would not fit in the house.”

In the short video Gavin posted online, Lylah impressively makes her way through the course, using one hand to zip-line over two large water containers and a log of her stuffed animals and making it all the way up the “Warped Wall” in one try. As of Thursday afternoon, the video had nearly 2,000 reactions and over 485,000 views on Facebook since it was first uploaded on Sept. 30. Gavin has also created a GoFundMe page to help out with the costs of the next obstacle course.

Check out the proud dad’s video of his daughter below.
