Shaunae Miller-Uibo was expressive on social media, thanking everyone for their support during her run for a world title and promised to come back even stronger next year. The 17th International Association of Athletics Federations’ (IAAF) World Championships wrapped up on Sunday, in Doha, Qatar. Miller-Uibo settled for silver in the women’s 400 meters (m) in an area and national record time of 48.37 seconds – the first outdoor area record for The Bahamas in the modern era. In other words, no American female has ever run faster over that distance, and the United States is the mecca for quarter-milers in the world. Salwa Eid Naser, of Bahrain, ran the third-fastest time in history in winning the gold. In fact, many consider her stunning time of 48.14 seconds as a world record given the drug-tainted era of the past. As for Miller-Uibo, she’s now the sixth-fastest of all-time. She said on social media that she is in great spirits and is looking forward to 2020 – an Olympic year.
