On Monday, August 15, 2016, at the Rio 2016 Olympics; everyone was looking for Allison Felix to go home with another gold medal. But, that was not to be. In one of the most dramatic races of the Olympics, the Bahamian, Shaunae Miller created a dramatic upset and will be going home as the Olympic 400m champion.
Ms. Miller ran the race of her life and lead for most of the race; until the last 20 meters, where Allison Felix closed on her, in perfect timing. Miller seeming to be on her last, lent at the finish and ended up taking a dive at the finish line.
Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson will be taking home a well deserved bronze medal, having done a personal best in the semi finals. If her time was repeated, who knows if she would not be on a different part of the podium.

That is some bull. Running comp not Diving. That should have given Felix the gold or tied for the gold
