NASSAU, Bahamas — Olympic champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo was in dazzling form again after she delighted the home fans with a star-studded performance to win the women’s 400 meters at the Bahamian Championships in Nassau.

Miller-Uibo, who entered the championships with the fastest time in the world this year, laid down another marker when she posted 49.59 seconds to race away from her opponents in a solo run.
