Unlike the men’s race, the women’s 400 meter dash was a close contest, with less than one tenth of a second separating gold and silver. Shaunae Miller, the 22-year-old sprinter from the Bahamas, wanted to ensure that she won the gold medal. She was so desperate for the win that she dove across the finish linewhich she says was not intentional. Not only did it raise questions about the legality of her action, but it also set off an explosion on the twitterverse.  Many people were upset by her dive, claiming that it was illegal and that the heavy favorite, Allyson Felix, should’ve taken the gold. Although it is mere speculation, some say there is a good chance that Miller would’ve won regardless of her controversial dive. This was a disappointing silver medal finish for both Felix and the USA, but we finished overall with a grand total of 46 gold medals.
