We've seen some incredible performances from contestants tackling different obstacle courses - who can forget this Ninja who dominated the course with the fastest time last night!

One user wrote "I dont think this show is a good example of equality in action ... why do we pretend women have the same athletic ability?"

However, others would argue that the fact that there's one course for everyone is actually very supportive of equality.

Let's not forget that in the United States, there have been plenty of women who've conquered the American Ninja Warrior course. Jessie Graff is one of the most successful female Ninja's and is an absolute machine!

So is Australian Ninja Warrior unfair to women? Or is it a perfect example of equality? 

The semi finals begin tonight!
