Perth powerhouse couple Ben Polson and Olivia Vivian share a special message with Have a Go readers but don’t forget to watch them on Sunday for the Australian Ninja Warrior Finals!

History will be made when someone finally scales Mount Midoriyama to become Australia’s first ever Ninja Warrior, in the grand final starting this Sunday at 7.00pm on Nine and 9Now.

In a finale to Australian Ninja Warrior that has to be seen to be believed, the last contestants standing will put everything on the line as they strive for the Holy Grail: climbing the daunting Mount Midoriyama.

But to get that chance they must make it through three stages of the gruelling and unforgiving grand final course, each stage increasing in difficulty. The first task is to complete the brutal Stage One course in under 3 minutes and 45 seconds.

Who will emerge triumphant? Will it be the red-hot favourite, Charlie Robbins, who was the furthest-fastest in 2019 and has won both his Power Towers to qualify for the grand final with a crucial advantage? Will practice make perfect for the Tradie Ninja, Sam Goodall, who has built his own version of Mount Midoriyama in his backyard?

Can Olivia Vivian add another title to her collection by becoming the first woman in the world to conquer the mighty mountain? Or will the dark horse of the competition, Matt Bowles, go further than anyone has before?

This must-watch blockbuster finish will have Ninja viewers on the edge of their seat as they witness history in the making.

And the Ninja action doesn’t end there: a two-part special event, Australian Ninja Warrior: State of Origin, begins on Sunday, August 16, at 7.00pm on Nine.

In this showdown, the four best Ninjas from each state are putting on their jerseys to battle it out for state glory and win $100,000. Fan favourites including Charlie RobbinsFred Dorrington,

Bryson KleinRaphaella Wiget and Olivia Vivian will proudly represent their state as they tackle a brand new, custom-built state of origin course.  

In Australian Ninja Warrior: State of Origin, everything is on the line as these supremely fit athletes work together in teams to win the bragging rights and prove which is the superior Ninja state in the whole nation.

But first, who will make it up Mount Midoriyama? Tune in to Nine and 9Now from this Sunday at 7.00pm to find out.
