  1. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's Infinite Tucker and he's the human version of Superman.

    Superheroically named Infinite Tucker of Texas A&M University won the 400-meter hurdles at the 2019 SEC Track & Field Championships. He clearly wanted the win. Badly.

    Tucker, who might just have the greatest name in sport, was taking part in the 400m hurdle final at the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Track and Field Championships in America when he quickly became an online sensation.

    During the 400m hurdle final at the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Track and Field Championship, Texas A&M athlete Tucker decided to take a leap of faith. Literally.

    So here goes; Tucker was neck and neck with fellow athlete Robert Grant in the final stages of the race when he decided to get over the line in the most unconventional of ways.

    I mean, athletes are known for doing whatever it takes to win, but to literally launch yourself full Superman-style has taken the 'put your body on the line' saying to new levels.

    We got a new star on the track because when the video was uploaded on the Internet, it became an instant hit. Social media had a field day funny reactions to the video and memes inspired by the incident.

    If only everyone was as dedicated to winning as Infinite Tucker. Just look at that spring and that face plant!

    After the race, he revealed what inspired him to take the ‘Superman jump’ towards his way to victory. He told ESPN. “I just gave it my all and I felt like diving to the finish was me using my whole body. I just gave it my all that race.”
