Salwa Eid-Naser ran a breathtaking 400m final to win the world title for the first time in her career.
In what has been the biggest upset of the 2019 World Championships in Doha, Nigerian-born Bahrain athlete, #SalwaEidNaser produced one of the best performances ever in a women’s 400m final, running the third fastest time in history to win in an astonishing 48.14s.
Many expected the race to be very fast, but not many envisaged it would be that fast, and for Naser to beat the installed favourite, Shaunae Miller-Uibo? It was a shock not anticipated.
