RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

A former gymnast became the first woman to complete an American Ninja Warrior course in an episode broadcast Monday on NBC12.

Kacy Catanzaro qualified for the finals in Las Vegas by completing the course. Catanzaro was the NCAA Southeast Regional Gymnast of the Year in 2012 at Towson University, according to NBCSports.com.

"Competing in gymnastics and getting some of those kinds of pre-competition nerves and butterflies definitely gives me an advantage," she said in an "American Ninja Warrior" interview published in May. "I've done gymnastics for my whole life, so I kind of know how to calm those down and control them."

She was on the show last year, as well, but failed to complete the course.
