WOW, is all you can say, when you watch the ending of the Women’s 400 Meter race! It was one that Allyson Felix was expected to win, but she was denied by Shaunae Miller who did a dive at the end to claim the Gold metal! #BeautyShopTalk is, not a lot of us are feeling that move, which MANY feel was sneaky and underhanded! A lot of folks feel like, it’s fair game and you have to do what you have to do!
The Bahamian athlete pulled that “Dive Move’ in the final yards of the race, beating the favorite Allyson Felix by 0.07 seconds. It’s ALL Good, because Allyson Felix is still the most decorated Female Track & Field Star! She claimed the Silver Medal in Rio! CONGRATS GIRL! But if looks could kill, tho! Felix’s look was like, “Did You Really Just Do That?”~ LOL (funny, not funny!)
According to the article, the move that led to a photo finish appeared to be legal. The rules state: “The first athlete whose torso … reaches the vertical plane of the closest edge of the finish line is the winner.” check it out:
