Bahamas has a new Track Queen – Shaunae Miller takes the GOLD at the Rio Olympics!
Rio – The BTC GOLDEN GIRL Shaunae Miller has claimed the Gold in the Women’s 400m race.
It took a dramatic dive by Miller at the finish line to win the women’s 400-meter final, preventing American Allyson Felix from capturing a record fifth Olympic gold medal.
Miller clocked 49.44 seconds, running in lane 7, to narrowly hold off Felix, who finished in 49.51. Shericka Jackson of Jamaica won the bronze in 49.85.
Felix won the 400m at the world championships last year and was planning to run the 200- and 400-meter double in Rio, but was hampered by an ankle injury at the U.S. trials and didn’t make the team for the 200.
