Because cameras aren’t allowed inside the courtroom, interns, armed with hard copies of the opinion, must dash across the plaza and down the steps to deliver the decision to the network correspondents waiting to go live from the press pen – with hordes of reporters, photographers, and protesters looking on.

According to ABC intern Jennifer Tintner, who delivered the second copy of the decision to ABC staff, it "felt like the Olympics, coming out for the final sprint.”

Without further ado, here's a glimpse of the toughest job in Washington:

First one out of the gate. (Guess we know who’s gunning for the “best intern of the year” award.)

Go interns, go!

Yes, we know what you're holding and we're all really excited.

It takes commitment to be an intern runner – three-steps-at-a-time type commitment.

Bonus points for wearing dress shoes.

Mission accomplished. ABC’s Allie Kessel delivers the decision to correspondent Terry Moran.

Here she is post-run -- breathless, but triumphant:
