Runner celebrates too early and loses the race looking like a complete tool

At the end of the men’s steeplechase at the Pepsi Team Invitational this weekend, Oregon’s Tanguy Pepiot ignored a very important lesson that’s been repeated many times on viral internet videos – don’t celebrate too early when you have the race clinched.

As he tried to get the crowd pumped, Washington’s Meron Simon overtook him just before the finish line.

As the cringeworthy video shows, nothing, NOTHING, is worth the risk of celebrating early.
