Bahamas sprinter Shaunae Miller clinched gold after a dramatic win in the 400-meter finals at the Rio Olympic Games on Monday night, but her victory soon became a hot topic of discussion on Twitter.
Miller dived across the finishing line to beat USA's Allyson Felix to win gold. She got hurt and has some cuts, bruises and a few burns, but the medal is going to remain with her forever. However, she soon was trolled on Twitter for her victory.
Social media users poked fun at her dive and reacted with humour. Funny posts made an appearance and there were a few who posted funny memes on Twitter. And while Miller's move was completely legal, a few social media users called her a cheater. Though a few even called Miller desperate, others supported her.
Check out the Twitter reaction below:
