Emily Durham is a professional wakeboarder who is the sister of Bart Copeland.
Durham first competed in American Ninja Warrior 7 in Orlando, where she failed the Tire Swing in qualifying.
She returned to compete in Atlanta. Her run was cut, but it was revealed that she went out early on the Big Dipper.
She later competed in Daytona Beach in American Ninja Warrior 9. in qualifying, she fell on the Wingnuts but placed 4th in the women's top 5. In the city finals, she got her revenge on the Wingnuts but later became one of three women to fail the Rolling Thunder. Her time getting there was beaten by Lindsay Eskildsen in making the womens' top 2 for the national finals.
Durham got to compete as a member of Team TNT in American Ninja Warrior Ninja Vs. Ninja.
Durham competed in American Ninja Warrior 10 in Miami. She breezed through the first three obstacles in 1:14.60, but failed the Ring Turn. However, since only four female competitors completed the Ring Turn, she made the womens' top 5 by barely placing 5th.
Similarly to last season, Durham got redemption on the obstacle that took her out, the Ring Turn, but failed the fifth obstacle, this time being the Slippery Summit, in the city finals and missed out on advancing to Vegas yet again, being beaten by Rachael Goldstein and Jessie Graff in the womens' top 2. But Jessie Graff was unable to compete and Durham got to replace her. Unfortunately, she failed the first obstacle, Archer Alley, in Stage 1.
She returned in Atlanta for ANW 11. Her qualifying run was digested, but she failed the Bouncing Spider, almost clearing it but failing to complete the dismount. She placed in the womens' top 5 for the third straight year, placing 3rd there. Her run was once again digested in the city finals, but it showed that she shockingly failed Block Run and did not move on to Las Vegas.
