This is why you should NEVER celebrate prematurely

Nobody told Tanguy Pepiot not to count his chickens.

YOU SUSPECT TANGUY Pepiot will never want to see this again.

Sadly for him, the internet will ensure he can never forget his premature celebration.

During the men’s steeplechase event at this weekend’s Pepsi Team Invitational, the Oregon athlete thought he had the race sewn up and, coasting the last 50 metres, started waving to the crowd getting them to cheer him home.

Sadly for Pepiot, Meron Simon of Washington was busy still racing and sprinted home to take the victory.
