T&F: Shaunae Miller-Uibo Wins 400m Gold At World Championships

 Former Lady Bulldog champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo collected her first gold medal in the 400-meter dash at this meet on Friday’s eighth day of the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Ore..

Complementing her two consecutive Olympic gold medals and pair of silvers at past Worlds competitions, Miller-Uibo ran a world-leading 49.11 out of lane three as the closest of the seven other finalists ran a 49.60.





On Wednesday, Miller-Uibo, who captured the 2013 NCAA indoor 400m title for Georgia, ran a season-best 49.55 to have the fastest qualifying time in the semifinal. 

On June 15, current sprinter Elija Godwin, a native of Covington, Ga., ran the opening leg for Team USA’s mixed 4x400m relay as the foursome ran a 3:10.16 to earn a bronze medal.  Godwin handed the baton to Allyson Felix, a 19-time World Championships medalist who officially retired following the race.

The meet began at the University of Oregon’s Hayward Field last Friday and runs through Sunday.  The Bulldog contingent represents Team USA, Antigua, Bahamas, Brazil, Estonia, Greece, Jamaica, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands.





The World Championships will be broadcast (NBC/CNBC) and streamed (NBC Sports/Peacock) simultaneously over the 10 days of action.

On Saturday, current Georgia All-Americans Kyle Garland (USA) and Johannes Erm (Estonia) will join Miller-Uibo’s husband and former Bulldog champion Maicel Uibo (Estonia) and current volunteer assistant Janek Oiglane (Estonia) in the decathlon starting at 12:50 p.m. ET. 

In addition, former UGA All-American and current UGAAA employee Chanice Porter (Jamaica) will compete at least on Saturday in the long jump, and Godwin is expected to take the track in the qualifying round of the 4x400m relay on Saturday and the final on Sunday if Team USA advances.
