Watch Chris Mazdzer face his latest challenge as he attempts a full run through the course

PARK CITY, Utah — Winter Olympians will be represented on the TV show “American Ninja Warrior” by Chris Mazdzer, a man who has done it all, from winning silver in singles luge in 2018, to making a spectacular run and finishing fourth on “Dancing with the Stars” that same year.

Prior to earning the first silver medal ever by an American man in singles luge, Mazdzer competed in the Vancouver 2010 and the Sochi 2014 Olympics, placing thirteenth in both for singles and sixth in the Sochi Luge Team Relay.

After winning his silver medal in PyeongChang, during which he placed fourth with the Olympic Mixed Team Relay in the same year, his sliding in the Beijing 2022 Games got Mazdzer an eighth in singles and a seventh in Mixed Team Relay.

With fond memories of training and competing for years at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City, he announced his retirement from the sport of Luge in 2023 and ever since has been raising his two young children with his wife in Salt Lake City. Mazdzer grew up in the Lake Placid area.

With the Summer Olympics in Paris starting in a month with coverage in the U.S. by NBC, the network has loaded up its sixteenth season of American Ninja Warrior with multiple Olympians.

Episode one featured Olympic medalist and University of Utah Gymnast MyKayla Skinner, episode seven is Mazdzer’s episode, episode eight will feature gymnast and retired four-time Olympic medalist Shawn Johnson, and in episode nine viewers can cheer on swimmer and medalist Michael Andrew.
