Only three athletes have ever completed Sasuke – the final competition of Ninja Warrior in Japan. The second  time this happened was on October 11, 2006 when Makoto Nagano completed the course of the 17th Tournament (Sasuke 17) with 2.56 seconds to spare. Nagano was a fisherman from Miyazaki prefecture born in 1972. He has competed in 29  Sasuke from #7 to #29, but has only completed the final stage once. An amazing athlete! The last time he competed at #29 he was 41 years old and still beat the hell out of kids half his age!
