G 4x400 (4a, Courtney Okolo is cheat code fast UIL 2012 - Jaw Dropping, Best of 2012)

The Jaw Dropping Moment of the Year in Flotrack's Best of 2012 goes to Courtney Okolo of Carrollton Newman Smith HS (May 11, 2012). Okolo had a historic day at the Texas UIL 4A State Championship this past May. She started off the day breaking the state record in the 400 running 52.40. The record was followed up with a 23.87 victory in the 200 meters, but she wasn't done there. In the final event of the day, the girl's 4x400 relay, Okolo got the stick 3 seconds behind a Lancaster squad that had already taken home two relay titles. With Okolo no where in sight, Lancaster looked to have the relay sweet on lock....but.... just...wait until the last 100..Mind Blown... (go to 3:43 in the video) Here's an interview with Okolo about the relay experience from Milesplit.
