Over the weekend, an Oregon runner learned the hard way that you should never celebrate a victory until you've actually won.

The Pepsi Team Invitational featured teams from Oregon, Kentucky and Washington. During the men's steeplechase, Oregon's Tanguy Pepiot had the race locked up.

Or so it seemed.

Toward the end, the senior started to celebrate too early by pumping up the crowd. Washington's Meron Simon never gave up and put on a last burst of speed, passing Pepiot at the finish line to win the race.

Rough.
