Competitive contestants compete on challenging obstacle courses on AMERICAN Ninja Warrior.

After taking home the women’s title of American Ninja Warrior, teenager Katie Bone garnered popularity online, and now her followers are curious to know more about her.

Who is Katie Bone from American Ninja Warrior?

Katie Bone is a 17-year-old athlete and high school student from Bernalillo, New Mexico.

Bone is well known for her participation in the popular NBC program American Ninja Warrior.

Before taking part in season 14 of the official series in 2020, Bone participated in American Ninja Warrior Junior.

Her perseverance and fortitude helped her advance through the season and into the competition’s national finals.

When Bone fell on the fourth obstacle during the first stage of the national championships, her participation for the season came to an end.

To compete at the Women’s Championship, which aired in late May 2023, Bone was later called back.

Fans watched as Katie Bone defeated 12 other women on May 29, 2023, to claim the title and $50,000 cash prize.

In addition to winning the American Ninja Warrior championship, Bone has been open about her struggle with Type 1 diabetes this season.

She made the decision to use her diagnosis to spread awareness when she was just 11 years old.

During the competition, Bone said: “Being a competitive athlete with Type 1 is not easy. I’m fighting my body every single day.

“I hope I inspire a little kid to wear their pump on their arm. It makes everything that you do that more amazing.”

Will Katie Bone compete in season 15 of American Ninja Warrior?

The upcoming season of American Ninja Warrior won’t have Katie Bone as a competitor.

In February 2023, Bone participated in the USA National Women’s Team Climbing trials for the Olympics, but she was unable to compete because of an ACL tear.

Recalling the incident, her mother Tammy Bone said: “Katie heard four pops. She tore her ACL and both sides of her meniscus.

“This was a moment she was preparing for all her life and it got put on pause… Now it’s come to a point where we will do anything to help her heal stronger.”
