Allyson Felix was about to win gold in the women's 400-meter dash. Then this happened.
Shaunae Miller, running for the Bahamas, dove across the finish line. That got her the gold by the tiny margin of .07 seconds over Team USA's Felix for an overall time of 49.44 seconds.
And according to the International Association of Athletics Federations rulebook, whoever has "any part of their bodies" cross the finish line first wins.
A lot of U.S. fans weren't exactly happy with Miller's tactic.
So Shaunae Miller won a gold for the new event of land diving, apparently.— Strahan Cadell (@Sartor1836) August 16, 2016
Allyson Felix won a gold for running the 400m, in my opinion.
Felix got a solid consolation prize though. Her silver medal means she now has more Olympic medals in U.S. women's track and field than anyone else, with seven. She topped Jackie Joyner-Kersee for the top spot.
