‘Supergirl’ Stuntwoman Destroys ‘American Ninja Warrior’ Challenge While Dressed as Wonder Woman

Now this is what a real superhero looks like! A Supergirl stuntwoman made history on Wednesday, June 1, when she donned a Wonder Woman outfit and completely demolished the qualifying course for American Ninja Warrior season 8.

Graff, 32, wore her short blonde hair in two tiny pigtails and kept a smile on her face through a large part of the strenuous Los Angeles Qualifiers course, which included swinging bars, rings and the intimidating 14-and-a-half-foot Warped Wall.

The fit stunt double became the first woman ever to best the new obstacle course and scale the wall after she completed the rest of the course with what commentators called “a blazing pace.”

“Her itsy-bitsy fingers are holding on for dear life!” one commentator exclaimed in amazement as Graff hung upside down on the high-beam cross, her fingers gripping the structure tightly.

In addition to working on Supergirl, Graff has also done stunts on such well-known TV shows and films as The Walking Dead, Bridesmaids, Iron Man 2, Agents of SHIELD and Wonder Woman.

According to the commentators, Graff was once a pole vaulter, which explains her impressive upper body strength.

She previously competed on season 5 of the Esquire Network series, when she became the first woman to qualify for the city finals.
