American Ninja Warrior

Roo Yori

Andrew "Roo" Yori might have been out but he's not down.

The Rochester man's sophomore appearance on the reality competition show American Ninja Warrior saw him triumph over obstacles like "Floating Steps" and "Broken Pipes," ... only to be brought "low by the lache" on something called "Crank It Up."

If he's disappointed not to make it to the city finals as he did in his rookie year, 2016, though, he's not letting on.

Rochester's Andrew "Roo" Yori is no stranger to national attention.

Before the 39 year old lab technician at the Mayo Clinic became a finalist on NBC's American Ninja Warrior, he and his wife Clara adopted a pit bull mix dog from a Rochester shelter.

In 2006, Yori and Wallace the Pit Bull were named National Dog Agility Association's World Champions for flying disc.
