Runner Molly Huddle lost her bronze medal by fist pumping in celebration before crossing the finish line.

Poor lady. She's the fourth fastest woman in the 10,000-meter race at the 2015 Beijing World Championships, but she's going down in history as the woman who was almost third fastest. What's especially crazy is she is not even the first runner this year to be documented ruining their win with pre-celebrations.

There was Ben Payne pointing up at Heaven to thank God instead of pushing through the tape:

And Tanguy Pepiot encouraging the crowd to cheer for his first place win that quickly became second place:

You'd think runners would be the first to know that this kind of thing happens all the time, and to save it for the victory lap. But when the cameras are at the finish line and you feel SO CLOSE and all the blood that should be in your brain is being used to keep your heart pumping, you must lose your head! Hopefully, Molly will bounce back from this on the track before she does on the Internet.
