He'll Never Make That Mistake Again': Runner Makes Huge Blunder Moments Before Crossing Finish Line

Oops.

"He'll never make that mistake again."

Those were the words of the sportscaster moments after he watched an Oregon runner get passed at the finish line when the athlete prematurely celebrated before crossing.

Tanguy Pepiot apparently thought he had the race locked up this weekend's Pepsi Team Invitational and slowed down to try to rev the crowd up.

Moments later, he was passed by Meron Simon, a runner from the University of Washington.

After the race, the Oregon runner was seen on the ground seemingly in disbelief at what had happened.

Video of the incident has since amassed nearly half-a-million views online.
