Bahamian sprinter Shaunae Miller has beaten the US team’s Allyson Felix to win her gold medal in the Rio Olympics women’s 400 meters race. Miller comes first in the competition at 49.44 seconds, a split second faster then Felix’s 49.51 seconds. Miller was leading from the beginning of the race, while Felix followed closely in the final meters. In the end, the 22-year-old Miller was crowned champion as she dived towards the finish line in exhaustion.
