Ben Payne, a 33-year-old American runner, was certain of his victory in Peachtree men’s open 10k in Atlanta, Georgia.
Sadly, the celebration of winning the marathon came too early as the 32-year-old British runner Scott Overall beat him by a fraction of a second.
It was indeed an awkward moment for Payne who was seen raising his hands in victory a few feet from the finish line. After the race, the defeated runner was seen putting his hands on his hips as he seems to realize the lost opportunity.
Spectator Luke Nichols commented: “Payne’s victory was supposed to be all the more sweeter as the race was on American Independence Day but this time the Brits got their own back with a victory.”
After reviewing a photo finish, Overall was declared the winner of the race beating Payne by 9/100ths of a second, finishing the 6.2-mile run in 29 minutes and 30 seconds.
Watch the awkward moment below.
After being proclaimed the winner of the race, Overall, who was the fastest British runner in that year’s London Marathon, seemingly wrote an advice for Payne on his Twitter account.
“Pleased to take the win today at the Peach tree 10km. Always run through the line! #Peachy.”
That’s an epic burn right there!
