Cincinnati track stud gains rival's admiration with epic steeplechase belly flop

An unlisted Cincinnati Glen Este High track team member rose to legendary status, according to his rivals, with this belly flop in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at last week's 13-team Anderson Invitational.

The steeplechase, rarely held at track meets across the nation, features a series of obstacles, including walls and water jumps to mimic the stone walls and streams from which the competition derived.

While no Glen Este competitor is listed among the 11 steeplechase competitors at the meet, Anderson junior Kyle Greulach posted the above video to his Instagram account with the following caption: "Glen Este kid belly flopping at the Anderson Track meet into water pit in the 3000m Steeplechase."

Likewise, Anderson graduate Tommy Vincent posed for a picture with the seemingly mythical Trojan.


Finally, Anderson junior pole vaulter Hartley Stevenson heaped more praise on the Glen Este stud.

Even though the kid may not have won the race, he will always be a champion in his rivals' hearts.
