“Superman Dive” at Finish Line Gives 400m Hurdler Dramatic Victory

A college hurdler clinched victory by performing a “Superman dive” over the finishing line at an athletics meeting in Arkansas, USA on Saturday. Infinite Tucker was flanked by Texas A&M team-mate Robert Grant in the closing stages of the men’s 400 metres hurdles at the SEC Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Not wanting to take victory for granted, Tucker flung himself over the finishing line head first. Tucker later played down his lunge for the line, but the fact he had finished second in this same race at last year’s SEC Outdoor Track & Field Championships may have played a part in the dramatic denouement.
