Lucio Batista Set to Return to the River Warrior in 2018
Lucio Battista also known as the Moustache Ninja will be competing again in this year’s River Warrior Competition. He is most recognized by his moustache inspired super hero costume and world class English style moustache.
Lucio is currently ranked 2nd in the U.S. and 4th in the World for his English style moustache. When he isn’t training to be the next American Ninja Warrior or competing in moustache competitions he keeps very busy. He is part owner of Monstro Holds, designing and creating cutting edge ninja warrior obstacles and training equipment to push the limits of the sport. He is also a full-time personal chef for many clients in New York and specializes in preparing meals for individuals with allergies and dietary restrictions.
His athletic background stems from over 20 +years of playing both ice and inline hockey. He still plays semi-professional inline hockey for the Hartford Fire Ants in the AIHL (American Inline Hockey League). When he actually has some down time you can find him in his frog room…yes you heard that right frog room. Lucio collects and breeds Poison Dart Frogs and has quite the collection including a few very rare and endangered species. Don’t worry though the frogs are only poisonous in the wild.
