Here she comes, Mount Midoriyama.

In a dominating performance that left Twitter buzzing last night, Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman ever to qualify for the final round of NBC's obstacle course competition, American Ninja Warrior. 

The New Jersey native and Towson University alum (who weighs a mere 100 pounds) blew through each challenge and accomplished something that many Olympians and Army veterans have failed to do.

Kacy Catanzaro Owns American Ninja Warrior
Yes, Kacy Catanzaro, we're very entertained by your American Ninja Warrior prowess.

"I've seen greatness during my NFL career," said America Ninja Warrior host and former Oakland Raiders defensive end Akbar Gbaja-Biamila. "And I've been in awe of people. But I am really in awe of Kacy."

Is Kate Middleton pregnant again for real? That's the rumor going around, and British bookmakers are seeing heightened activity as a result!

Kate, William and Harry

Just as Prince George's birthday is approaching, and with old friend Jessica Hay "confirming" her second pregnancy, the rumor mill is working overtime.

Eager royal family fans are wondering when a little sister or brother may join the adorable royal baby in the palace nursery. Could it be within a year?

A British bookmaker is encouraging that speculation ... or was, until a firm called Coral halted all bets on the pregnancy of the Duke and Duchess Monday.

A series of bets were placed online Monday night on whether Kate Middleton is indeed expecting a second child right now, which makes you wonder.

As in, wonder what those people know ... and wonder who bets on celebrity gossip?!

"When bets come in at once late in the evening, it sets alarm bells off," Coral's Nicola McGeady said, noting that up until yesterday, "It's been quiet."

The defense has rested in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial, but we likely won't see a verdict handed down until mid-August at the earliest.

In the meantime, the South African Olympic hero is a free man, and while hanging out in the VIP room of a Johannesburg club last night, Pistorius was reportedly involved in a violent altercation with another patron.

TMZ reports that an unidentified man began to question Pistorius about his trial, and Pistorius instigated the violence by poking the man in the chest.

The man responded by shoving the double-amputee sprinter, causing him to fall to the floor.

Pistorius curently stands accused of murdering Reeva Steenkamp, his girlfriend of three months.

His reps don't deny that the fight took place,  but they claim that Pistorius was simply defending himself against an unprovoked assault.

In case you've been living under a rock in a cave on the moon, the German men's national team won the World Cup in a long, boring nail-biting match against Argentina.

The Germans partied with Rihanna to celebrate and it seems the twerk-happy pop star may have taught the guys some dance moves that they awesomely put to use while presenting the Cup to their fans back home.

Yes, it's time to move over, touchdown dances! Trophy presentation dances are where it's at!

Germany may have destroyed Brazil in their now-famous semifinal match, but now it seems the boys from Berlin are ready to reveal their true talent: destroying the dance floor!

In slightly less surprising NBA free agency news than LeBron returning to Cleveland, the New York Knicks have severed ties with Lamar Odom.

The 34-year-old never even suited up for the orange and blue.

Lamar on the Clippers

Knicks president, Phil Jackson, who coached Lamar for five years in his prime with the L.A. Lakers, just signed Odom in hopes of revitalizing his career.

So much for that.

"Unfortunately, Lamar was unable to uphold the standards to return as an NBA player," Jackson said. "We found it necessary to free up the roster spot."

He did not elaborate on why the Knicks ended Odom's two-year contract after less than three months, and without him ever playing in a game.

You can imagine a whole host of reasons, though, if you're a Keeping Up With the Kardashians devotee or read any amount of celebrity gossip.

Derek Jeter will retire at the end of the 2014 MLB season, and with the year's halfway point upon us, tributes to the legendary Yankees shortstop have begun rolling in.

Earlier today, Nike unveiled a 2-minute commercial set to air during Tueday's All Star Game in which fans ranging from Spike Lee to Carmelo Anthony to a group of begrudgingly respectful Bostonians all tip their caps in tribute to El Capitan.

A group of Mets even join in the show of respect. Fortunately, their faces are digitally blurred so as to keep their lockers un-vandalized by teammates.

As for Mr. Met, himself, well...he probably should've thought twice before appearing in the spot. Dude's got the world's most recognizable head.

Check out the video above to see a wide array of sports fans show their love for Jeets.

A young David Luiz fan wrote a nice letter to Brazil's maligned captain after the home team's disastrous World Cup loss, reminding us that it's only a game.

Not only that, her touching note served as a needed antidote to some other fans who, you could say, took Brazil's thrashing by Germany a bit seriously.

After his team's loss - and what many felt was a poor effort by him individually - Luiz received the letter from nine-year-old Ana Luz, which he shared on Twitter:

  • David Luiz Fan Letter
  • D. Luiz

“Hi David Luiz," the letter reads.

"My name is Ana Luz. I saw all of the Brazil games in the World Cup and I liked it a lot watching you play. I think that you don’t need to be sad because you played well and did the best you could."

"You were a great captain. Life is like this, sometimes people lose and sometimes people win but people only need to be happy. David Luiz, you are my champion."

The World Cup may be over (There's always 2018, Argentina!) but for Rihanna, the party is still going strong.

Rihanna's been rooting for Germany since day one, so naturally the famously sports-obsessed singer flew to Brazil for the big final match of the world's biggest sports tournament.

Fortunately for us, she shared some highlight via Twitter and Instagram:

Rihanna Celebrates Victory!
RiRi parties with the German soccer team after their World Cup victory. She'd been rooting for ze Germans from the start of the tournament.

Yes, when you're Rihanna, you don't just root for your favorite team from the stands - you take them out after the game and show them how to party!

RiRi described partying with GMNT as "the best day of my life" on Twitter. We're sure it was a pretty memorable occasion for the players too.

Was it hot yesterday in Brazil?

Or was it just Shakira?

Donning a red bodysuit and shaking her truth-telling hips, The Voice judge helped close out the 2014 World Cup by performing "La la la (Brazil 2014)" on the field pitch prior to Germany playing Argentina in the final match.

The German would go on to win 1-0, but many viewers would go on to only remember the sight of Shakira singing, shaking and gyrating in front of thousands in the stands and millions watching at home.

Watch the sexy samba performance now and beware of getting drool on your keyboard:

We already knew Shakira was into hips, but who knew she has such a passion for feet as well?!?
