Awkward Moment US Runner Celebrates Victory Too Early Only to be Beaten by British Rival

We all feel bad for this dude, don’t we?

A A A

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.

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!

Son Tells Dad to Check the Back Seat for a Special Birthday Surprise

Even the toughest man can get all giddy at the sight of a cute puppy!

Pet dogs can really put a smile of on our faces. Whenever we feel tired after a hard day's work, our pets are our feel-good buddies. Whenever we are in some kind of danger, they are always there to rescue us, and the list goes on. This is why losing a pet is probably the hardest thing a family may have to go through. The bond formed between pets and owners is extraordinarily beautiful and just like humans, emotions are invested in such relationships.

The family of Philip Michaels lost their 15-year-old Maltese and his dad was totally heartbroken. So for his father's birthday, Philip decided to get him a brand new pup. He went to the place where they first got their late maltese. Philip saw a cute little pup in the corner and as soon as he grabbed it, the dog wagged its tail and he was instantly reminded of their maltese; he knew he found the one.

In the video below, he captured his dad's priceless first reaction to their new pup. And may we say that we didn't expect such giddy, all cutesy response from the might-fierce aura of the dad? It was totally unexpected!

Brave Man Swims with a Tiger at Marakapula Reserve in South Africa

How is this possible?

By

Interacting with wild animals is equally exciting and terrifying at the same time. But I'm not sure where one would get courage and guts to actually swim with a massive tiger.

A volunteer at Marakapula Reserve in South Africa faced his fear and swam with a 9-month-old tiger named Caesar. In a video posted on Youtube, the zookeepers revealed that Caesar, who has a  medical condition, needs to undergo therapy to strengthen his legs. In order to do this, he does laps with a brave male volunteer.

The giant cat seems to be at ease with the volunteer as he splashes  water and plays with a ball in the swimming pool. When another volunteer standing beside the pool threw a plastic bottle, Caesar  eagerly reached for his new toy. By the looks of it, Caesar was definitely having fun in the water.

Towards the end of the video, I can’t help but get scared for the volunteer who held the tiger up as it paddled on water. Needless to say, he had already earned the predator’s trust as manifested in their special bond in the water.
