University track star Infinite Tucker clinched victory in the 400m hurdles by performing a 'Superman dive' over the finishing line during an athletics meeting in Arkansas.
Tucker, who attends Texas A&M, played down his dramatic victory over teammate Robert Grant saying: 'I saw my [mother] at the finish, and I jumped to give her a hug. And that's all it is.'

I honestly don't know why more sprinters don't do this. It's so simple when you're thinking about it really.

The rule should be that the feet must cross the line. If not, expect to see more dives like this in the upcoming races including the next Olympics.

For the record, track and field timing does NOT go by the "first body part to cross the line" (unless, of course, in cases of ultra super ties that computers can't even distinguish between in which case other body parts will be used to determine a win, I think I remember a case where someone's hair was used to determine a win.), it goes by the midsection typically, I believe it's defined as the "torso" in the rules. Most runners will "bend over" or jut their chest out when finishing a race if it is close, which will make their shoulders and/or chest/stomach hit first (which is fine) but diving isn't inherently useful because as you can see in this video, he actually slowed down significantly once he did. Now if you dove closer to the ground that would have made sense. But in all honesty it SHOULD be against the rules, but it's really not. It's just kind of an unwritten rule and you'll likely be shunned by your peers if you do. (It almost never happens professionally or at the collegiate level.) To me honestly it looked like his legs were shutting down and he was falling but he knew he wasn't going to make it so he just jumped, not an "on purpose" dive.
