Shaunae Miller dived across the finish line to win gold. Cheap move? | The Tylt
The 22-year-old Bahamian sprinter won the gold medal in the 400-meter sprint after diving, belly first, across the finish line. For some this is the epitome of Olympic competition, giving it your all and finding that last extra ounce to win. Others see the dive as a cheap move that ripped the gold from U.S. sprinter Allyson Felix.
Shaunae Miller dived across the finish line to win gold. Cheap move?
Her dive is among the greatest.
But some critics think diving shouldn't be allowed.
The dive is being compared to other "cheap moves" in sports.
Some might see it as a cheap move, but are there double standards depending on the sport?

It crossed the plane.
I think I'm pro-diving over the finish line.— Michael Roston (@michaelroston) August 16, 2016
Shaunae's win might always be questioned.
