LAS VEGAS, NV — The finals of the UNAA (Ultimate Ninja Athletic Association) World Series Championship took place in Las Vegas, NV on July 29-31. Over the course of three days, local ninja athlete Annika Kilinski systematically worked her way through a series of challenging obstacles to place third and bring home the bronze. 

“Competing in a Las Vegas arena was amazing,” said Kilinski. “The course was tough and the competitors were tougher, but my training paid off. I used the technique and skills I learned to get through the course with almost a clean finish. I wanted to represent SNL and my teammates well!” 

Ninja Lab coach Dan Kirchner added, “Annika is a dedicated athlete. She is training at the Saratoga Ninja Lab multiple days a week, all year long.” 

To qualify for this event athletes around the nation had to compete and place in a number of qualification competitions. For more information about Saratoga Ninja Lab, visit their website at
