Hurdler superman-dives across finishing line for split second win

Normally, athletes bow towards the finishing lines in hopes of crossing it a little bit faster, but Infinite Tucker took it a leap further.

Yes, name really is Infinite Tucker. A junior at Texas A&M University, as reported in CBS News.

At the recent Southeastern Conference (SEC) Track & Field Championship, he finally won gold when he took a Superman-style leap at the crossing line.

“I closed my eyes over hurdle 10, I opened it, saw my ma at the finish, and I jumped to give her a hug, that’s all it is.”

Infinite Tucker told ESPN

Hence the reason he leaped with joy.

He wanted to hug his mom.


A video on YouTube shows Tucker’s full Superman dive.

At the last SEC Championship, he only won Silver.

This time, he beat his team mate, Robert Grant by a mere 0.09 seconds lead.

Social media has gone mad with his skills and determination for gold.
