Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at only 18 months old, doctors did not believe that Colt Scott would develop at the same pace as his peers - and how right they were! In his life, the self-proclaimed "Diabadass" has gone on to compete on the Netflix series Ultimate Beastmaster, as well as the NBC series American Ninja Warrior in order to show parents and kids like him that nothing can hold him back.
Ninja name: Diabadass
Best memory from ANW: Hearing my friends and family cheer for me from the sidelines was by far the most surreal moment for me. For years before I had gotten the call, I had been a course tester, and my ninja life seemed like something so separate from the rest of my world. When these two worlds collided, it was a dream come true.
Favorite ninja obstacle: Double dipper
Proudest ninja moment: Completing Stage 1 in testing, ANW 10
What I do when I'm not training: Rock climbing, hiking, and going on adventures! In my off time, I advocate for Type 1 diabetics at different conferences and events across the country.
Fun fact about me: I like to mix in some "real" ninja training every now and then by throwing knives and tomahawks for sport.
