American Ninja Warrior: Jessie Graff Makes History at the National Finals Stage 1

Jessie Graff is about as close to a real-life superhero as we have, so enjoy her athletic brilliance while she shines.

The "Supergirl" stuntwoman and ex-pole vaulter crushed "American Ninja Warrior's" nearly impossible Stage 1 last night, making her the first woman to ever complete the insane obstacle course. And she did so with flair, a shiny green skirt, and 12 seconds to spare.

Graff was actually the first female to even scale Stage 1's Warped Wall, which is what took her down last year. Everything beyond that feat this time around was pure gravy.

After that, when the inevitable neared reality, the NBC competition announcers declared that "the Internet is about to blow up." It did exactly that.

Over her entire run, completion of the course never really seemed in question, as Graff made it all look pretty routine. It was anything but that though, of course.
