Shaunae Miller, a 22-year-old sprinter from Nassau, Bahamas, has won Olympic gold in the women’s 400m.
She beat out the multiple-gold United States champ Allyson Felix and rising Jamaican superstar Shericka Jackson in the nail-baiting sprint.
Shaunae, a silver medallist behind Felix at the World Championships in Beijing last year, threw herself across the line, after tripping, to win in 49.44sec.
It was a courageous performance from Shaunae, whose great-uncle Leslie Miller competed in the 400m at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City.
Allyson, the most decorated female track and field athlete in history, took silver in 49.51sec with Shericka Jackson of Jamaica claiming bronze in 49.85.
