[Watch] Oregon runner beaten after celebrating too early

<p>It is never over until the fat lady sings or until you cross the line of the race. </p> <p>Tanguy Pepiot will remember this for a while to come. The steeplechase runner from the University of Oregon had a healthy lead over his rival Meron Simon from the University of Washington at the Pepsi Invitational race.</p> <p>He had so much time on his hands he decided to wave his arms to gee up the crowd and celebrate his victory. </p> <p>While he waved, the home crowd tried to warn Pepiot that his rival was fast approaching but the warning came too late.</p> <p>As he slowed Simon powered past him to take victory.</p>
