The heart-racing obstacle course competition series "American Ninja Warrior" premieres its ninth season this summer. The action-packed series follows competitors as they tackle the world's most difficult obstacle courses in qualifying and finals rounds across the country.

In the first Qualifying Round from Los Angeles competitors must tackle six obstacles, including Cannonball Drop and Battering Ram, which are new this season. "American Ninja Warrior" veterans Kevin Bull and Grant McCartney return for another shot at completing the course. Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila host and Kristine Leahy co-hosts.
