Watch The Insane 4x400 National Title Race Everyone's Talking About

usc 4x400 women final leg national title

USC's women's 4x400 team pulled off the feat of the sports weekend on Saturday, winning the national championship on a ridiculous come-from-behind win in the relay event.

Heading into the 4x400, the Trojan women needed a victory in the race to clinch the team national title. If they couldn't win, the women's championship would go to Georgia (which won the men's title).

For 1550 meters, it looked like the Georgia women were going to get that national title. Kendall Ellis, USC's anchor, had other ideas.

Ellis pulled off an insane final leg, running her 400 in :50. She passed Purdue's anchor with only inches to go in the race, giving USC the win.

It was incredible.

Watch it below:

Ellis' 50.05 split on the relay was a good two seconds faster than anyone else running the final leg.

Congrats to her and her Trojan teammates. That was awesome.
