Valley ER doctor to compete in American Ninja Warrior national finals tonight
Carson Valley emergency room doctor Noah Kaufman will appear on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior tonight at 8 p.m.
Kaufman, who advanced through the qualifying round on the show in July only to fall during the Venice city finals, was invited to compete in the field of 100 finalists as a wildcard at the national competition in Las Vegas.
Kaufman is an avid rock climber and an emergency room physician at Carson Valley Medical Center. During a segment shown during an earlier episode of American Ninja Warrior, camera crews followed him around the Valley and his work environment at CVMC in Gardnerville.
American Ninja Warrior is an obstacle-themed athletic contest drawing athletes from a variety of disciplines, including rock climbing, parkour, gymnastics, track & field and martial arts.
