Ninja Challenge League Finals 2019

The crown jewel of the Australian ninja calendar, the Ninja Challenge League Finals 2019 sponsored by OZIGRIP on November 2 & 3 pitted the best ninjas who qualified in Australia and wildcards from around the globe against the undefeated Ninja Challenge course.

The Finals have now concluded, but you can still catch all the action of the adult NCL Finals 2019 as it happened through our YouTube livestream.

This was the fifth Finals event we have held, but for the first time ever, the NCL Finals 2019 also featured a Youth Finals competition with qualifiers from Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide which ran alongside the adult finals.

The run order for Stage One of the NCL Finals was determined by the points by competitors throughout the NCL 2019 season, with the highest points earners running later to allow more time to observe and learn from lower-ranked competitors.

Wildcard competitors have been assigned their position at the discretion of the Ninja Challenge League.

Competitors that successfully clear Stage One in the 2:00.00 time limit, attempted to complete Stage Two and the remaining stages on Sunday, November 3.

The run order for Stage Two and the following stages was determined by the speed of completion of the previous stage. For example, the fastest finisher on Stage One ran last on Stage Two.

A list of all major award winners is below.

NCL Youth Finals 2019

Youth competitors will compete in the following four categories according to year of birth:

Youth competitors tested themselves against obstacles they had never tried before and a time limit on multiple stages across two days – just like the adult Finals, they needed to hit the buzzer to advance!

All youth competitors in all age divisions attempted Stage One on Saturday, November 2.

Those that successfully cleared Stage One within the time limit attempted Stage Two on Sunday morning, with those who successfully cleared Stage Two competing in Stage Three on Sunday afternoon.

Competitors had only get one attempt to clear the course, but were allowed to attempt the remainder of the obstacles on the last stage they attempted.

The results for the NCL Youth Finals 2019 are presented below by age division, beginning with Teens.
