Entering the final turn in a rainy event with temperatures that couldn’t crack 60 degrees, she was slightly behind fellow American Shaunae Miller-Uibo, the same runner who’d lunged to beat Felix in the Rio Olympics 400-meter race. Miller-Uibo sustained an injury 30 meters from finishing Wednesday, and Felix unexpectedly slowed down as well to clock 50.08 seconds. “You always go into a race wanting to win, this was my goal all season. When you fall short of that, it’s definitely disappointing,” she said, according to ESPN.com. “At the same time, I feel very grateful to have done this for a very long time now. To be competing at the top still means a lot to me. “But I can’t lie. I’m very disappointed.” Although Bolt is expected to medal in the 4×100-meter relay to reach 15 world championship medals, Felix could maintain the tie with a medal in the 4×400 relay, which the United States is favored to win. Felix graduated from Los Angeles Baptist High School in 2003 and ran for USC in college. She lives in Santa Clarita.

Although Uibo looked like she was going to end up with the title she stumbled with a few meters to go and was over taken by Francis' kick.
