The Broken Bridge is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the seventh obstacle in Stage One on American Ninja Warrior 8, replacing the Coin Flip from last season. It contained of six unstable hanging triangles, with gaps ranging from 2 feet to 3.5 feet. The triangles were hung at slightly different heights, with every other triangle being a bit higher. Only one competitor (Chris Boehm) failed on this obstacle.The Broken Bridge returned as the fourth obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 9 in Daytona Beach. Two modifications were made on this obstacle, compared to the last season. Firstly, rather than being staggered up and down, the triangles were rearranged in a skewed-V pattern. Secondly, the cables between the triangles were removed, so they would swing independently (rather than as a whole).
