Shaunae Miller-Uibo pulled away from the pack and blew away the field, winning the gold in the 400m finals at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
Miller-Uibo won her race in 48.36 seconds to defend her Olympic 400m crown on Friday.
This win comes one day after Stephen Gardiner won gold in the men’s race.
The 27-year-old surged to the finish line beating Maileidy Paulino of the Dominican Republic who took silver, and Allyson Felix of the United States claiming bronze.
Miller-Uibo jogged to eighth place in the 200m finals a few days ago, after experiencing discomfort in her hamstring.
However, today Miller-Uibo is the gold medalist in the 400m.
