Sandy Zimmerman, a.k.a Zimmpossible, a PE teacher from Spokane, WA, made history in the TV show American Ninja Warrior by being the first mother to hit the buzzer, a feat that had not been achieved in eleven seasons of the sports entertainment show.
Sandy is currently 42 years old and this was her third time trying the renowerd obstacle course of American Ninja Warrior. In her website, she explains that physical activity and sports were the source of many life lessons she dearly needed while growing up in poverty, and that the determination and tenacity she acquired training judo (she was a national judo champion at age 12), basketball, and many other sports, allowed her to make a good life for her family, which consists of her husband and three kids with whom she shares the passion for the challenge of American Ninja Warrior.
Sandy’s story is truly inspirational and we invite you to draw parallels with your own life projects, both in music and other areas of your interest. We are cheering for you just as we cheer for Sandy for season 13 of ANW, which is going to premier on May 31st!
