Iowa cousins competing in NBC's American Ninja Warrior

Posted: Updated:

Blood's still thicker than water, even as two Iowans compete for a spot on American Ninja Warrior on NBC. 

Spencer Johnson is from Clive. Tyler Smith is from Johnston. 

They're cousins who train all year round at their homes and at "Climb Iowa" in Grimes.

But don't let that competitive spirit fool you, these two are rooting for each other.

Both made it into the top 30 in the Kansas City qualifying course.

They'll compete again in the Kansas City finals in a few weeks.
