The race took place at the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Track & Field Championships where Infinite Tucker (yes that’s his real name) became Texas A&M’s newest champion.

Tucker was neck and neck with his own college teammate Robert Grant in a race to win the SEC title.

And the youngster pipped his pal to the line by making a Superman-like leap that propelled him to victory — avenging his second-place finish in the same event two years ago.

Tucker revealed his inspiration came from seeing his mother at the finish line.

He told ESPN: “I closed my eyes over hurdle 10. I opened it, saw my ma at the finish, and I jumped to give her a hug.

“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.”

Teammate Grant was clearly not impressed, though.

Smiling, he told ESPN: “If I say what I thought on this camera, microphone right now, Coach (Pat) Henry would kick me off the team.”

Watch the video below.

Fans on social media went wild for the audacious dive as Tucker went viral.

Women’s Running Community (WRC) was created to inspire girls and women to choose health and wellness over our culture’s harmful obsession with having the “perfect” runner’s body type, weight or shape. Our goal is to educate the world that health, beauty, and wellness come in many forms and that no one body type, shape, size, culture or weight is more worthy of respect, love and acceptance than another. We want to challenge the industry leaders and media creators to expand their vision of what a runner or being healthy looks like.
