Being an athlete is never easy. But when one has competed at the highest level in their respective sport, that takes a great deal of athleticism and can even open up avenues for one’s athletic prowess to be on full display.
That is about to be the case for one of the WNBA’s greats.
Tamika Catchings, 2012 WNBA champion with the Fever, 10-time All-Star and four-time Olympic gold medalist has been tweeting as of late her progress in training for American Ninja Warrior.

The training looks tough, but when all is said and done, Catch can add American Ninja Warrior to her long list of accomplishments that, in addition to WNBA champion and Olympic gold medalist, also include owner of Tea’s Me Café and Vice President of Basketball Operations for the Indiana Fever.
She also was named 2011 MVP and claimed was named to the WNBA’s First Team on seven occasions.
