Rio De Janeiro: Strange things do happen at the Olympics. Especially in races, when the results are decided in a matter of seconds.

In one of such incidents, Shaunae Miller of Bahamas denied USA's Allyson Felix a gold medal in women's 400m final, after she dived over the finishing line at the last moment to end at the top position.

It would have been Felix's fifth Olympic gold medal had she won the race.

The gap between the top two racers was marginal as while Miller clocked 49.44 seconds, Felix's timing was of 49.51 seconds.

Jamaican Shericka Jackson took the bronze in 49.85.
