Infinite Tucker, who attends Texas A&M University, was out front in the race with only one realistic competitor.

He was quick to play down the dramatic victory over teammate Robert Grant saying: "I saw my [mother] at the finish, and I jumped to give her a hug.

As the two approached the finishing the line, the commentator exclaims "Yes, he dives for the tape!"

Exhausted after the win, he lies on the track facing upwards, before members of his team, including his training partner, come over to make sure he is okay.
