Let this be a lesson: It’s never over ‘til it’s over.

At the Pepsi Team Invitational in Eugene, University of Oregon track runner Tanguy Pepiot was ahead of the pack in the men’s steeplechase. As he raised his arm to the crowd in victory, University of Washington’s Meron Simon overtook the UO senior.

You can see the look of confusion on Pepiot’s face as Simon crosses the finish line and pumps his fist to the air; he thought the race was already over.

The UO Athletics Department called it a “teachable moment.”
