Had she dropped out of her 400m hurdles race, Brigham Young University sophomore Brenna Porter had a valid excuse.
Competing in the preliminary heat of the 400-meter hurdles, Porter clipped the first hurdle of competition and fell to the ground. Despite the hard fall and a 7 inch gash to her leg as a result, Porter got right back up and kept going. With a considerable distance between herself and the rest of the field and blood gushing down her leg, Porter FINISHED THE RACE. Talk about #beastmode and true grit.
