Sam Goldstein is a software developer who competed in Venice in American Ninja Warrior 7.
In qualifying, Sam Goldstein tore through most of the qualifying obstacles with no problem. However, on the Hourglass Drop, he failed to grab the second bridge, and got disqualified. His speed to that point was enough to place him 8th overall; he got to the obstacle faster than anyone else that had failed it.
In the city finals, he once again raced through the first four obstacles with finesse. However, history repeated itself as he was once again disqualified on the Hourglass Drop. Given his speed, he was able to stay in the top 15 by placing 12th.
His run on Stage 1 was cut, but it was revealed that he failed the Jumping Spider.
