    Ben Polson is crowned Australia’s first-ever Ninja Warrior

    History in the making! Ben Polson is crowned Australia’s first-ever Ninja Warrior as he conquers Mount Midoriyama in record time

    After four years, and more than 636 Ninja runs and 106 grand final attempts, Ben Polson has been crowned Australia’s first-ever Ninja Warrior.

    The 27-year-old Perth videographer managed to scale Mount Midoriyama in just 25.56 seconds and take home a whopping $400,000 during Monday’s grand finale.

    Ben was up against season three winner Charlie Robbins and Zak Stolz, who each needed to climb a 20-metre rope in under 30 seconds. 

    History in the making! On Monday, Ben Polson was crowned Australia’s first-ever Ninja Warrior after he conquered Mount Midoriyama in record time

    The three contestants were the first to attempt to climb Mount Midoriyama in all four seasons of the Channel 9 show.

    Ben said he wanted to take his girlfriend, Olivia Vivian, on holiday to Japan, and plans to invest the rest of his prize money.

    ‘Four hundred thousand dollars is a lot of money! Especially during such a rollercoaster year,’ he said in a statement.

    Reflecting on his win, Ben explained: ‘I wasn’t your average kid at school.’

    ‘I felt like an outcast and got bullied a lot. It wasn’t until I discovered Ninja training that I once again felt I had a purpose,’ he continued.

    ‘It helped me build myself back up physically and mentally. Conquering Mount Midoriyama is not about what I have received, it’s about who I have become.’

    Ben, Charlie and Zak have all cemented their names in the history books, joining an elite group of only 14 people in the world who have scaled Mt Midoriyama.

    The show will conclude with a two-part special finale on August 16, which will see the best four Ninjas from each state return for a chance at winning $100,000. 

    Next week’s State Of Origin will see contenders Charlie Robbins, Fred Dorrington, Bryson Klein, Raphaella Wiget and Olivia Vivian on a brand new, custom-built state of origin course.
