World Athletics Championships: Phyllis Francis upsets the field to take gold in the 400m

Pathik Gamana | Coming into the final, all the talk was about Allyson Felix and Shaunae Miller-Uibo and the rematch after their epic race in Rio last year when the Botswanan dived across the line to win gold. For the American, she was looking for the perfect ten. The first athlete to achieve ten major World Championship titles.  But the surprise athlete of Phyllis Francis came home with the gold medal after Miller-Uibo pulled up in the home straight, who ended up finishing down in fourth. Meaning, Bahrain's Salwa Eid Naser broke more records, a National Record to take silver while Felix was forced to settle for the bronze.
