USC's women's track team pulled off a nearly impossible feat as the Trojans won the NCAA title by one point. And wait till you see how they made it happen.
Entering the 4x400 relay at Saturday's NCAA track and field championships, USC needed to win the race to overtake Georgia. The Bulldogs were sitting in first place with 52 points and Stanford in second with 51. Winning the relay was the only way Southern Cal could claim the title.
It's not just that they did it but how they did it.
They were further behind than they had planned when things got worse. They had a bobble on the final hand off, and with just one lap to go, things looked very bleak for the Trojans. In fact, as the runners made the final turn for the stretch run, things did not look much better. That's when Kendall Ellis made up the ground in astonishing fashion.
This is the type of performances that make athletes go down in history.
