Olympic medalist becomes shortest man to scale 'American Ninja Warrior's' warped wall

Jonathan Horton is a two-time Olympic medalist in gymnastics, which pretty much makes him the ideal human specimen to conquer American Ninja Warrior... or he would be if he was just a little taller.

That didn't matter at the Houston qualifiers, however. Despite being just 5'1 he absolutely dominated the course including the record-breaking scaling of the Warped Wall. The wall is 15.5 feet tall, meaning he ran over THREE TIMES HIS HEIGHT VERTICALLY. Keep an eye on Horton, because he'll be a competitor to watch.
