FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas — A Texas A&M University track & field athlete had to pull out his "super powers" to win an event.
During the South Eastern Conference (SEC) track & field championships, junior Infinite Tucker was neck-and-neck with a teammate for the final stretch of the 400-meter hurdles, when he went full "Superman" to take first place on the podium.
"Honestly, I'm glad I got the win and competed against the best," Tucker said on his school's website. "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."
Tucker did give it his all while flying through the air to beat teammate Robert Grant. Currently, "Superman" Tucker is the U.S. and collegiate leader for the 2019 season and ranks 10th on the world list.
So we might see him "flying" again during the Olympics for the red, white and blue.
