Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas beat out USA track and field star Allyson Felix in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games 400-meter final Monday night.

Miller started strong, dominating the first 300 meters. Felix gained on Miller in the final stretch, the two soon running stride for stride.

In stunning fashion, Miller dove across the finish line, beating Felix by a narrow .07 seconds.

While she wanted the gold, the 2016 Rio 400-meter silver medal made Felix the most decorated female track and field athlete in Olympic history with seven medals total.
