Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas on Monday night dove to steal gold from Allyson Felix of the United States in the women 400-metre final at the ongoing Rio Olympic Games.
The 22-year old runner outsmart fellow competitor, Felix, to win gold when it appeared clear that Felix would be victorious in the race. Miller had to take a big push by diving to the finish line to deny the almost certain Felix the gold medal.
Her display was thought to be a trip but replays of her fall indicated she had done that to finish ahead of her strong competitor, Felix.
Watch her footage below:

Miller is indeed a great athlete with strong focus and character, someone who will never stop until the best is achieved. She never mind the pain from her fall just to get the best prize of the night, gold.
