Whatever It Takes: College Hurdler Supermans Across Finish Line For The Win

May 13, 2019

This is a video of Texas A&M collegiate hurdler Infinite Tucker (great name) Supermaning across the finish line in the 400-meter hurdles event to clench the victory over teammate Robert Grant (who's apparently equal parts Confederate and Union general). Man, even in slow-motion these guys still move twice as fast as I ever could, and that's assuming I'm being chased by a man with a battle axe, and we aren't LARPing.

Keep going for the full video.

Thanks to Zootghost, who agrees if you can dive for victory, dive for victory.

    Unpopular opinion: Sports shouldn't be about winning at all costs. This is an example of poor sportsmanship. He stole a victory from the better athlete by being willing to damage his body. It's the same attitude that drives people to abuse steroids or painkillers. He may have jeopardized his whole career. A good coach would scold him for what he did. But now bad coaches everywhere will start pushing their athletes to finish every race with a dive for the sake of winning.

    It's a bird! It's a plane. No, it's traumatic brain injury!

  • That's a superman trip.

    I thought hurdlers were docked some time for each hurdle they knocked down... I guess not.

    So, I only watched it about half way ... did they ever find his face?

    Not sure that would actually help him in a normal stride. It looked like he was about to trip and that was his recovery as he was already in the lead..

    That really is a great name

    A win is still a win, no matter how ugly...

    What's ugly about that? I thought it was beautiful
