Warrior

The hit
show challenges participants’ speed, agility, and strength through over-the-top
obstacle courses.

In the
event that no one finishes the course, the ‘Last Man Standing’ title is awarded
to the competitor who made it the furthest – in this case, Shieff who reportedly
suffered an ‘agonising’ loss when he fell during the second-to-last segment of
the course.

Preparation

Shieff took
to Twitter
after the season finale aired to discuss the results, and his
approach to preparing for the show, with critics and fans.

He credited
a raw vegan diet for helping him get competition ready with only ‘two weeks’ notice’ – and said he drew inspiration from MMA fighter Conor McGregor and the
music of Kodak Black.

The athlete
has also participated in Ninja Warrior series a number of times before,
including Ninja Warrior USA vs. The World, where he contributed to Team Europe’s
win over the US.

‘All she
wrote’

After the
competition, Shieff recounted his fall with host Rochelle Humes.

He said: “I’ve
never done this obstacle before in my life. Each catch takes a lot out of you.

“Not only
are you catching the bar, but you are stopping from rotating as well. It’s
quite a unique muscle you’re using. I thought ‘let me just swing to the
platform and I’ll go’.

“That was
the last swing and all she wrote.”
