NEW YORK (Reuters) - When gymnast Kacy Catanzaro, the first woman to reach the finals of the “American Ninja Warrior” fitness TV competition show, faces an unfamiliar challenge she closes her eyes and pictures herself conquering it.

The 5-foot (1.5-meter), 100-pound (45-kg) powerhouse is known as Mighty Kacy ever since she leapt, pulled, climbed and swung her way through the show's obstacle course that has bedeviled many men. She credits her victory to mental focus and upper body strength.
