Texas A&M runner goes full-on Superman to dive over the line and win race
Texas A&M University track star Infinite Tucker secured an astonishing victory in the 400m hurdles by performing what is now being dubbed the 'Superman dive' over the finishing line.
Tucker narrowly beat his teammate Robert Grant when he dived across the finish line after clearing the final hurdle. The New York native ultimately won the title and received a gold medal for his efforts.
Check out Tucker's incredible dive in the video below:
"Honestly, I'm glad I got the win and competed against the best," Tucker told the Aggies official website after the win. "Me and my teammates all worked hard for this, and I came out with the win. I'm happy and thankful for that.
"The mindset was to score as many points as possible, we wanted to go 1-2-3-4. It really didn't matter which one of us won first place, we knew if we gave it our all we would be happy with each other."
Texas A&M track and field coach Pat Henry added: "I've told Tucker you can't get there faster diving, just run through and you'll be fine. He thought he was a swim team guy today."
Tucker's dive resulted in a winning time of 49.38 seconds, one of the best in the entire school, according to Texas A&M.
This win was redemption for the young athlete, after finishing second in last year's championship race.
Tucker is currently the US and collegiate leader for the 2019 season and is 10th on the world list.
