Smart Bahamian runner, Shaunae Miller lunged with a dive to win the 400m Gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
The 22-year-old, beat American, Allyson Felix who was leading the race towards the finish line, by taking a head-first dive like a Superwoman to cause an upset on Monday over America’s top female sprinter in the 400 meters and deny her a record fifth gold medal.
Miller won the Gold with the most dramatic dive across the finish the line to win by .07 seconds.
Emotional Miller said, “This is the moment I have been waiting for, I just gave it my all.”
“The only thing I was thinking was the gold medal and the next thing I know I was on the ground, It was just a reaction.”
A tearful, Felix when asked about the dive, said “I was just focused on myself, I didn’t really have too many thoughts on it.”
“It hurts right now. I don’t think I ever quite had a year this tough.”
