American olympian runner Allyson Felix was determined to snatch the first place gold medal in the 400 meter dash, but the last minute stunt pulled from Bahamian Shaunae Miller put Felix in second place. Felix was so beaten down post race that she was unable to speak to reporters right away; the disappointment sunk in after she failed to bring back yet another gold medal for Team USA. It was predicted that Felix would win the race as she ran her way to the front of the line and led the race. The winner of the race was unknown when within the last few seconds of the race Miller dived down over the finish line; claiming that it was something she had never done before. However, controversy arose amongst social media when it was argued that it was an unfair move because Miller was not running in the moment. The rules specifically distinguish that the first athlete who’s torso reaches the vertical plane of the closest edge on the finish line is declared the winner. Felix’s silver medal made her one of the most decorated women in the track and field history with seven medals total.
