Catchings has one of the most illustrious careers in WNBA history
Tamika Catchings is best known for her defensive prowess in the WNBA. Now she's bringing that aggressiveness to the obstacle course.
The Lady Vol and Fever legend recently announced that she's joining American Ninja Warrior, and on Monday Catchings tweeted about her progress on the course. Based on her videos, Catchings is ready to join American Ninja Warrior, and her athleticism hasn't slipped.
