Alan Connealy is a Gym Owner that competed on American Ninja Warrior from Season 3 to Season 9.
In the qualifying round he finished in 54 seconds, placing 10th overall. In the Semi-Finals he beat the first six obstacles in 45.20 seconds, (almost 10 seconds faster than his qualifying time) but he failed the trampoline jump to the Salmon Ladder mere inches from the bar. Nevertheless he managed to earn a spot at boot camp by placing 15th overall, and eventually 14th when Michael "Frosti" Zernow withdrew from the competition due to a back injury.
In Boot Camp he struggled and fell on several obstacles, ultimately going up for elimination on Day 4 and due to his arm injuries he couldn't finish the Heavenly Rope Climb and he lost to Drew Drechsel.
Alan returned in American Ninja Warrior 4 and despite failing the Lamp Grasper in the Regional Finals he managed to clench 15th place. In the Vegas Finals, Alan was digested, but he failed on the Half-Pipe Attack in the Stage One when he grabbed the rope too low and touched the water.
In American Ninja Warrior 5, he cleared the Quintuple Steps, but he tried to press his arms into the Frame Slider when he couldn`t lock his feet in, and it resulted in a dislocated shoulder. Luckily, fellow competitor Noah Kaufman popped it back into place, and as a result, Alan felt better.
In American Ninja Warrior 6, he competed in Venice again, and this time completed the qualifying course with the third-fastest time. In the Venice Finals, like many other competitors, he failed on Cannonball Alley. However, he made it there fast enough to qualify for the Las Vegas Finals. In the finals however, he was one of many that night to fail the Silk Slider.
In American Ninja Warrior 7, he cleared the Qualifying course and got the second fastest time, being one of just 7 finishers that night. In the Venice finals, he shocked everyone when he failed the Hourglass Drop and came in 16th place. However, he was shown on the sidelines along with Brian Kretsch supporting Dustin McKinney and Ryan Stratis in San Pedro.
In American Ninja Warrior 8, his run was cut for first time. He was one of many competitors who failed the I-Beam Cross, however he still made it into the top 30, placing 21st. He was featured in the city finals but failed the same obstacle he failed in qualifying, most likely due to his heavier weight being a disadvantage. Alan placed 24th overall.
In American Ninja Warrior 9, his run was digested and he failed the Battering Ram in qualifying. Alan still advanced to the city finals, but he failed the Battering Ram again, making it the third straight year he fell on the fifth obstacle in a city finals course. This would've become his final appearance and he hasn't competed since.
