Shane Miller’s dive to beat Alyson Felix was definitely the biggest moment of the Olympics last night, and will be remembered for the entire games. During the women’s 400 meter final the Bahamian sprinter jumped out to big lead in the first 300 meters, but coming down the stretch american favorite Alyson Felix was heading for a strong finish and what seemed like a historic gold medal. However Miller was willing to put it all on the line to beat Felix, so what did she do? She dived like she about to race Katie Ledecky in swimming, to upset the Felix and prevent her from making history.
Here at Guy Standard, we thought it was really courageous move. Miller had to give her everything to win that race and take the gold home for her country, and her leap is one of the inspirational finishes we’ve seen.
There’s the internet. And the internet has no mercy. Within minutes of the race the memes started pouring in and they haven’t stopped. Check them out below they’re hysterical. And this time you don’t even have to feel bad because at the end of the day Shaunae Miller doesn’t have to care about memes, she has a gold medal.
