Injured High School Runner Crawls Across Finish Line for Coach
Need some inspiration today? We're tearing up after watching this video of Holland Reynolds, a 16-year-old California high school running star who collapsed just feet from the finish line in a race that would determine whether or not her team went to the state championships.
"I just kept on telling myself, 'I need to finish and I need to cross the line,' " Reynolds tells ABC News. "I don't remember falling, but then I remember crawling across the line."
Not only did her crawl secure her team a spot at state, but Reynolds also honored Coach Jim Tracy, who has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, and can no longer run.
Tracy, who says he was in a "complete state of shock" when he saw her crawling across the finish line, said he checked the numbers and realized his team had been victorious. "We won," he says. "And it was a great feeling."
