'American Ninja Warrior' finale: Jonny Moseley would like to see Bode Miller attempt the course

Zap2it: What athletic mentality is best for prevailing in this week's big "Americna Ninja Warrior" finale at the American Mount Midoriyama obstacle course at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas?Jonny Moseley: On this course, you have to have an incredible degree of adaptability, that kind of "dude" mentality, because you don't know what the obstacles are going to be. Even if you watch competitors from the side, it's different for you. And these guys are under time pressure. How quickly can you make a judgment, then stick to that execution, and how good is that judgment?Zap2it: You won an Olympic gold medal [Nagano, 1998] for freestyle skiing. Are other skiers attempting the course?Jonny Moseley: I haven't seen any skiers that I knew. You'll probably start to see some. You remember that show "The Superstars"? (It pitted athletes from different disciplines in an all-around competition.) I got invited to do that after the '98 Olympics, and I... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/07/american-ninja-warrior-finale-jonny-moseley-would-like-to-see-bode-miller-attempt-the-course.html

'American Ninja Warrior's' Matt Iseman: 'You only get one shot at it'

Zap2it: Next week, "American Ninja Warrior's" finale airs on NBC. What can we expect?Matt Iseman: We've narrowed it down to the Top 100 competitors, and now we do the finals in Las Vegas. At Mandalay Bay, we rebuilt Mount Midoriyama, down to the inch. Three football fields, it's taking up. It looks insane. We'll run everyone through the course.Zap2it: What sort of athlete is good at running the "Ninja Warrior" obstacle course?Matt Iseman: It's cross-training. I think this is the most difficult athletic feat of any competition of any sport. If you look at it, Mount Midoriyama is such an ultimate challenge. It takes an all-around athlete. You have to have the agility, the upper-body strength, the endurance. You have to have the cerebral component to be able to manage it. You only get one shot at it.I'm not saying the person who does it is going to be the best athlete in the world,... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/07/american-ninja-warriors-matt-iseman-you-only-get-one-shot-at-it.html
