Internet Reacts to Shaunae Miller’s Dive For Gold in 400-Meters (Video + Tweets)
On Monday at the Olympic Games in Rio, Bahamas sprinter Shaunae Miller pulled off a massive upset in the women’s 400-meter finals as she beat American favorite Allyson Felix with a desperate dive at the finish line.
That dive by Miller put her over the line just ahead of Felix—six one hundredths of a second, to be exact— and it also drew the ire of people all over the internet.
