Runner / Cyclist Celebrate Too Early

>> Saturday, May 24, 2014

A week ago, there were too awkward "low lights" in the sporting world. A cyclist and a runner were both caught celebrating too early.

Eloy Teruel was racing in the Tour de California, and during the 7th stage, he thought the race was over. But in reality, there was 1 more lap. Awkward.

And Taoufik Makhloufi was caught celebrating too early in an 800 meter race at the Diamond League Meet in China. He was passed at the line (losing by 4 hundredths of a second) and lost out on a $10,000 pay day. (Replays start at the 1:55 mark where you can see it clearly.)

Yikes. Pay attention. Reminds me of the time that Lance got caught at the finish line of a 70.3 about 2 years ago. Oops. Don't forget it's a race... to the finish.
