Infinite Exhaust of Texas A&M can’t jump tall structures in a solitary bound, yet he is a viral saint after his outstretched jump to triumph in the 400-meter obstacles at the Southeastern Gathering titles on Saturday.
Tucker, who seemed to have a slight lead on partner Robert Allow when he took off, said he wasn’t pondering the Man of Steel. He was considering his mother.
“I shut my eyes over obstacle 10. I opened it, saw my mama toward the completion, and I bounced to give her an embrace,” the hurdler told ESPN, per outlets. “That is all it is.”
Twitter jumped without hesitation. Up into the clouds, Infinite!
Former Olympic 100-meter hurdler Lolo Jones was among those commenting:
Some saw the plunge as a super no-no.
But Exhaust’s turn zoomed through the web quicker than a speeding bullet.
