The photo-finish finals of the women’s 400 meter dash was seriously one one of its kind. Desperate to win nothing but gold, Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas, earned it by diving headfirst into the finishing line.

Failing to outrun Allyson Felix of the US in the world championship held in Beijing last year, Miller had to settle for silver. This time, determined to grab the gold, the 22-year-old-athlete maintained a steady lead as the race took flight.


But an experienced Felix who was a 200 meter gold medalist in 2012 Olympics, charged in the final 100 meter giving tough time to Miller. However seeing that coming from Felix she decided to dive into finish line to ensure a return with the yellow metal.

Miller finished in a 49.44 seconds pushing Felix to silver at 49.51 sec and Shericka Jackson of Jamaica to bronze at 49.85.
