GYMNASTICS coach Zak Stolz has a new army of supporters following his win on the Australian Ninja Warriors televised entertainment show.
Taking home the title of Furthest Fastest in 2021, the 23-year-old from Rosebud credits his agility to his years training in the artistic gymnastics discipline.
He also broke a world record for the furthest distance by lacheing (launching from a shelf) 4.7 metres. The shelf grab world record stood at 4.57 metres.
Stolz’s record smash earned him an extra $15,000 on top of the $100,000 prize money he’d already won in the grand final.
He said there was always room for improvement and has his high sights set on the next Ninja challenge, possibly overseas.
