My name is Drew Drechsel, it was in 2011 when I first competed for American Ninja Warrior unexpectedly becoming one of the top competitors. However my journey to Japan was cut short due to what is said to be the most shocking injury in American Ninja Warrior history. I cracked my femur, chipped my tibia, tore my ACL, MCL, lateral and medial meniscus; after surgery and several months of physical therapy I was back competing making it to stage 2 twice and taking the fastest time in my region. It has been 3 years since my injury and it is my hope to return to Japan and conquer the course that defeat me. My journey will begin in Malaysia, however due to a recent move it has made it difficult to save enough funds to travel. I will appreciate any amount donated and it would be my honor to represent America during my journey.
