How the Internet Reacted to Shaunae Miller's Gold Medal-Worthy Finish Line Dive

Posted on

It took less than 50 seconds for the Bahamas’ Shaunae Miller to clinch the gold in Monday night’s 400-meter dash at the Rio Olympic Games. And just a few seconds after that fans started riffing online on Miller’s dramatic finish line dive.

They reacted with humor, surprise and amazement. In their posts, some poked fun at her successful last-second gambit and some poked fun at themselves.

(And at least one person made an Arthur joke.)
