Nick Hanson

Alaska Roots: Alaska born and raised in Unalakleet

AK Warrior: Nick represented Alaska on the American Ninja Warrior TV show. Twice. While many of the other competitors train in state-of-the-art gyms, Nick's Alaska-style training program includes a salmon ladder, equipment made from driftwood and eating traditional foods.

The Original X-Games: Nick is known for getting huge air (30 feet!) in the blanket toss competition at the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics. As a coach for the Native Youth Olympics he is inspiring a whole new generation of athletes. 

Whether you were born and raised in Alaska or just have the Alaska born and raised spirit, we want to hear from you.
