Oregon runner Tanguy Pepiot may have lost a race, but he did win himself a spot on future lists of embarrassing premature celebrations.
A senior from France, Pepiot was leading the steeplechase at the The Pepsi Team Invitational this past weekend with just a few strides left. He motioned to the crowd to get louder, and before he knew it he was being passed. Washington's Meron Simon rocketed past Pepiot to take the crown.
Here's what Simon tweeted to a fan afterwards:
@TheBillyNelson Thanks Billy! Gotta run through the line brotha!

Simon won by a tenth of a second.
