Here we have competitor D’andre, age 19, Albuquerque , New Mexico (born in Las Vegas , New Mexico)
Athletic background? I played football for a few years as a kid. Then I started training parkour my freshman year of high school & that was about 5 years ago.
Why obstacle training? I stumbled upon Ninja park one day, I was never really interested in obstacles but on my first day attempting obstacles I fell in love! NOC training is so much fun! I love how challenging it is and I really enjoy trying to figure out new ways of completing an obstacle.
Why compete? Motivation? I’m not really into competitions , some people tend to take them to seriously and that takes the fun out of it. When I compete I do it just for fun!
Personal interests (movies, hobbies, music, books, charities, etc.)? I enjoy video games, scifi and action movies. I like to hike , swim , rock climb , longboard and practice parkour! I do other stuff also like eat food and sleep and stuff.
Something interesting about you? A dog bit my face and ripped my lips in half.
Motto or how you live your life? jump first fear later
Piece of advice for obstacle course training? buy Ontisuka Tigers and do parkour and always have fun!
