University of Wisconsin-Madison senior Marquez Green will be competing in the Seattle/Tacoma City Finals tonight for American Ninja Warrior.
American Ninja Warrior attracts some of the top athletes from around the country. The show brings together hundreds of competitors to complete a series of obstacle courses in different cities around the United States. The top finishers advance to the national finals in Las Vegas.
Both Marquez Green and twin brother Nathan are seniors at UW-Madison and have previously appeared on American Ninja Warrior under the nicknames “Wisco Twinjas.” The twins lost their mother to cancer when they were 14 and she has been the inspiration for them wanting to appear on the show.
Green, 21, hit the buzzer as a rookie in the Seattle/Tacoma Qualifiers and is looking to do that again tonight on the episode of American Ninja Warrior that will air at 7 p.m. CT on NBC.
