Strathalbyn’s Jim Delderfield slipped when competing recently on Australian Ninja Warrior , but it’s an error that he won’t make again.

Jim now has his own obstacle course in his backyard, so he can practice and hone his skills in readiness for his next try out in season two of Australian Ninja Warrior.

“I don’t like failing. I really want to give myself the best possible chance next year. Now I can train all the time,” he said. “It was an amazing experience … but I was pretty devastated, I just mistimed a dismount (and fell). I was expecting to do much better.”

A butcher for nine years at Maidments Meats in Dawson Street,  Jim says his diet is simple. “Steak and veggies, that’s it,” he laughed.
