Runner celebrates too early, loses race

(YouTube/FOX Sports) (YouTube/FOX Sports)

An Oregon runner's finish line gaffe is proving why you should never celebrate before you win.

Tanguy Pepiot coasted as he reached the finish line, waving and pumping up the crowd at the Pepsi Invitational over the weekend.

As Pepiot slowed for the celebration, Washington's Meron Simon gained enough speed to sprint past to victory.

Pepiot's reaction goes from delight to devastation as he realizes he lost.

The video has surpassed one million YouTube views in less than one day.
