Last night, Shaunae Miller, 22, won gold in dramatic fashion in the women’s 400-metre, by taking a leap of faith at the finish line, diving and sliding along the track to upset and deny USA’s Allyson Felix her fifth gold medal, with only 7-100ths of a second separating the two athletes.

Everyone thought Felix had the gold medal wrapped up, until Miller dove into the finish line to shock her. She later said: “I’ve never done it before. I don’t know what happened. The only thing on my mind was I had to get a gold medal.”…

But the question is if this is actually allowed ??.#nigerianwomendiary ™
