Andrew Lowes is a gymnast from Winthrop Harbor, Illinois.
American Ninja Warrior
In his rookie season, American Ninja Warrior 4, he completed the Midwest Qualifying Course, but in the Midwest Finals, failed on the 8th obstacle, the Lamp Grasper. However, his performance was still good enough to make the top 15 and make it to Las Vegas. There, Lowes completed the first six obstacles but failed at the Spin Bridge. He started training by running over many different spinning objects back in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he lived at the time.
In American Ninja Warrior 5, he completed the Baltimore Qualifying and City Finals course to advance to Mt. Midoriyama for the second time. In Las Vegas, he got revenge on the Spin Bridge, but he moved too slow between obstacles. After he pressed the buzzer at the end of the course, his nightmare from last season was replaced by a new one as he learned that he timed out on the top of the Rope Ladder, pressing the button three tenths of a second too late.
In American Ninja Warrior 6, he competed in the St. Louis Qualifying Course. There, he cleared the course and placed 20th. In the Finals Course, he cleared the first seven obstacles but went out on the Rumbling Dice. Luckily, that was still enough to make it back to Vegas again. After a heartbreaking miss last year, he completed Stage One this time. In the Stage Two, he failed the Metal Spin.
In American Ninja Warrior 7, he competed in the Houston Qualifiers. His qualifying run was all cut but it showed that he completed the course. However, on the city finals course, he failed on the Swinging Spikes, when his foot hit the water on the dismount. He placed 27th overall, which made this the first time he didn't move on to Vegas.
In American Ninja Warrior 8, he competed on the Oklahoma City course. His runs were all digest, but he cleared the Qualifying course placing 15th and even took a selfie at the buzzer. In the Finals, he failed on Bungee Road but placed 9th and made his fourth trip to Vegas. On Stage One, he had made it past both the Propeller Bar and Giant Log Grip, that had taken out a fair amount of top competitors, along with the Jumping Spider, but he failed the Sonic Curve.
Lowes competed for his sixth season in American Ninja Warrior 9 in San Antonio. His qualifying run was cut, but he completed the course in 3:10.98, placing 10th. In the city finals, he failed Spinball Wizard but placed 6th and moved on to the national finals.
In the national finals, Lowes' run was completely cut, but it was shown that he got past the tougher version of Sonic Curve, Parkour Run, and finished with 6.68 seconds to spare. On Stage Two, he was one of many to fail Wingnut Alley. This tied with ANW 6 as his best performance, making it to the fifth obstacle in Stage Two
After tying with ANW 6 as his strongest performance last year, he was expected to go far on his return in his seventh season in American Ninja Warrior 10. His qualifying run was cut, but he had failed Crank It Up in Dallas qualifying, which made it the first time that he had failed on a qualifying course. Although he was able to continue in the city finals as he placed 15th overall, his season ended on the Broken Bridge, making it his second season missing out on the national finals. Lowes placed 25th overall in the city finals.
Lowes was not invited to compete on American Ninja Warrior 11, but he did attempt to walk on but was not selected in the walk-on lottery either.
He cleared Stage 1B with 42.64 seconds left. Then, he cleared Stage Two with 2:34.11 seconds. However, on Stage Three, he failed on the Hang Climbing.
