\'Superman dive\' at finishing line gives university athlete dramatic win in 400m hurdles

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.'

    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.

    15 years ago, i was doing pole vaulting but i suggested this same superman finish to my sprinter friend, he thought it would be embarrassing and wouldn't gain any advantage over other sprinters, i am glad somebody finally tried it, i believe he did gain a slight advantage and would have finished second if he didn't do that, problem is if it's proven that it does give an advantage, everyone will start doing it and i believe the iaaf would add a rule against it in the future.

    بلال أول من رفع الأذان بأمر من النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في المسجد الذي شيد في المدينة المنورة واستمر في رفع الأذان لمدة تقارب العشر سنوات هذه المعلومات كثيرا منا يعرفها ودرسها او قرئها لكن مالا يعرفه الكثيرون هو اين بلال بعد وفاة حبيبه وحبيبنا محمد بن عبد الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ذهب بلال الى ابي بكر رضي الله عنه يقول له: (يا خليفة رسول الله، اني سمعت رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- يقول: ( أفضل عمل المؤمن الجهاد في سبيل الله)... قال له أبو بكر: (فما تشاء يا بلال؟) قال: (أردت أن أرابط في سبيل الله حتى أموت)... قال أبو بكر: (ومن يؤذن لنا؟؟)... قال بلال وعيناه تفيضان من الدمع: (اني لا أؤذن لأحد بعد رسول الله)... قال أبو بكر: (بل ابق وأذن لنا يا بلال)... قال بلال: (ان كنت قد أعتقتني لأكون لك فليكن ما تريد، وان كنت أعتقتني لله فدعني وما أعتقتني له)... قال أبو بكر: (بل أعتقتك لله يا بلال)... فسافر الى الشام حيث بقي مرابطا ومجاهدا يقول عن نفسه: لم أطق أن أبقى في المدينة بعد وفاة الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم، وكان إذا أراد أن يؤذن وجاء إلى: "أشهد أن محمدًا رسول الله" تخنقه عَبْرته، فيبكي، فمضى إلى الشام وذهب مع المجاهدين وبعد سنين رأى بلال النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- في منامه وهو يقول: (ما هذه الجفوة يا بلال؟ ما آن لك أن تزورنا؟)... فانتبه حزيناً، فركب الى المدينة، فأتى قبر النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- وجعل يبكي عنده ويتمرّغ عليه، فأقبل الحسن والحسين فجعل يقبلهما ويضمهما فقالا له: (نشتهي أن تؤذن في السحر!)... فعلا سطح المسجد فلمّا قال: (الله أكبر الله أكبر)... ارتجّت المدينة فلمّا قال: (أشهد أن لا آله إلا الله)... زادت رجّتها فلمّا قال: (أشهد أن محمداً رسول الله)... خرج النساء من خدورهنّ، فما رؤي يومٌ أكثر باكياً وباكية من ذلك اليوم وعندما زار الشام أمير المؤمنين عمر-رضي الله عنه- توسل المسلمون اليه أن يحمل بلالا على أن يؤذن لهم صلاة واحدة، ودعا أمير المؤمنين بلالا، وقد حان وقت الصلاة ورجاه أن يؤذن لها، وصعد بلال وأذن ... فبكى الصحابة الذين كانوا أدركوا رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- وبلال يؤذن، بكوا كما لم يبكوا من قبل أبدا، وكان عمر أشدهم بكاء... وعند وفاته تبكي زوجته بجواره، فيقول: "لا تبكي.. غدًا نلقى الأحبة.. محمدا وصحبه"..: اذا اتممت القرأه فضلا ارجو الاشتراك في قناتي الدينيه وجزاكم الله خيرا
