Dan Galiczynski is a gymnast and gym owner from Ivyland, Pennsylvania. He has competed in American Ninja Warrior for a total of seven seasons.
He then returned to compete again for American Ninja Warrior 4 in the Northeast regionals, and history repeated itself once again where he couldn’t get up the Warped Wall in qualifying. However, his time was fast enough to make it to the semi-finals, placing 21st. In the city finals, he was able to get up the Warped Wall, and finished the course with the 3rd fastest time. In the National Finals in Las Vegas, he failed the Jumping Spider.
He came back in American Ninja Warrior 5 in Baltimore where he completed the qualifying course with the 5th fastest time. In the city finals, he completed the course with the fastest time, thus beating Joe Moravsky’s time. In the National Finals in Las Vegas, history repeated itself when he failed the Jumping Spider.
He competed again in American Ninja Warrior 6 in St. Louis. He completed the qualifying course, placing 10th. In the city finals, he once again completed the course, placing 5th. In the National Finals in Las Vegas, he was able to get revenge on the Jumping Spider, and then he eventually finished Stage 1 for the first time ever. In Stage 2, he got past Rope Jungle and the Double Salmon Ladder, but failed the Unstable Bridge. This marks his best performance to date.
In American Ninja Warrior 8, he was one of the many veterans not invited back to compete, likely due to the purging of many veterans by the producers.
After not getting called back, he returned for American Ninja Warrior 9 as a walk-on in Cleveland, where he completed the qualifying course with the 4th fastest time. However, in the city finals, he was one of many to fail the Nail Clipper, but his time was fast enough to qualify for Vegas, placing 7th. Unfortunately, he was not able to run in Vegas, due to an ankle injury. If ever there was a replacement for him to run in Vegas, it has yet to be confirmed.
