Not quite the Tortoise and the Hare, but ...

University of Oregon’s Tanguy Pepiot thought he had the victory in the men’s steeplechase at this weekend’s Pepsi Team Invitational and started slowing down and raising his hands to get the crowd to cheer.

That’s when the second place runner (at the time), Meron Simon of the University of Washington, passed Pepiot at the finish line for the win.
