FRED DORRINGTON - AKA ITV's AUSSIE NINJA
Fans of ITV’s hugely popular Ninja Warrior UK will probably recognise Fred as the nimble, didgeridoo playing, kangaroo sporting, Aussie boat builder who made it all the way to third place in the Series 3 final.
Known by many as an elite Ninja athlete, Fred comes from a very active background – he was a successful competition level swimmer and baseball player in his teens, and is now into yoga, calisthenics and generally ‘mucking around outdoors‘ – his main focus is rock climbing, something in very short supply on the Essex coast, where he has lived for the past 5 years.
Having studied engineering at Uni in Australia and trained as a carpenter, Fred has now joined a highly skilled group of boat-builders that are a tradition on the east coast (of England!). Fred’s engineering/ninja skills are being put to combined use at Ultimate Ninja UK – helping to keep the obstacles fresh and challenging.
Whether you’ve followed Fred on TV or not – you won’t fail to be impressed by his strength, agility and balance if you see him during one of his regular training sessions at Ultimate Ninja UK. Better still, why not take the opportunity to learn some of Fred’s techniques by joining one of our Saturday morning Ultimate OCR Ninja Bootcamps!
