Former Towson University gymnast Kacy Catanzaro has continued an impressive run on NBC's American Ninja Warrior. She's made it clear that she won't let her diminutive frame (5'0", 100 lbs) hold her back.

With her incredible performance at the 2014 Dallas finals, she became the first woman to ever qualify for "Mt. Midoriyama," a 70-foot steel structure that only the top competitors get the chance to conquer.

During her time as a gymnast at Towson, Catanzaro was named NCAA Southeast Regional Gymnast of the Year. It's easy to see why when you watch the video.
