    The youth searched for a glimpse of the finish line.

    Hi,

    While reading an article, I got confused abou this sentence below.

    [Looking up, the youth searched for a glimpse of the finish line. "It's somewhere up there".]

    What does it mean? Is a glimpse in this sentence 'a kind of light'?
    Af first thought, I thought the youth tried go get a glimpse of the finish line.
    On second thought, however, I wondered if it should read differently.


    Thanks for your help in advance.

    James
