Idiot Runner Celebrates Win Too Early And Gets Caught Out

Usually you leave the fist pumping until after the race is finished...

Runner prematurely celebrates win, gets passed at finish line


It's a pretty golden rule in running, don't slow down until AFTER you cross the finish line.

Well a runner in Oregon made a mistake recently that he won't make again, where he was clearly ahead of the pack with only 20 metres to go.

On slowing down and pumping up the crowd it gave the fast approaching second place to get that all important second-wind and push himself over the finish line, in first place!

Can't say we feel all that sorry for him, but here's hoping he won't do it again.

 

"It Aint Over 'Til It's Over"

There's one Aussie sportsman that can definitely relate to this...

Cyclists' Train Near Miss

Paris-Roubaix One Day Classic cyclists struggle to pull up at train crossing

There was brief drama during the Parix-Roubaix One Day Classic when a barrier at a railway crossing came down as the peloton was passing underneath.

One rider was clipped by a barrier and several more crossed after it was down, but by the time a TGV train passed, the remaining riders had been brought to a halt by a police motorcyclist.

German John Degenkolb went on to win the Paris-Roubaix race,

Classic Wrestlers From The 80s

With WWE heading down under we looked back at some of our favourite classic wrestlers from the 80s.

Wrestling is a sport like no other. For one, it's not really a sport and purely entertainment but that's what makes it so damn good.

As one of America's biggest cultural exports wrestling is something that english and non-english speaking countries have been fanatics of for years.

Here at Triple M we love our wrestling and especially the crazy 80s with classic guys like Hulk Hogan, The Iron Shiek and Andre The Giant.

With WWE heading to Australia in August we thought we'd look back at our favourites from that time.

Andy Murray Throws Team Mate Under The Bus

Murray accidentally revealed team mate Dom Inglot had a 'side chick' in Glasgow.

Andy Murray is a s**t bloke, well, maybe only accidentally.

In a recent post match interview while playing for Great Britain, the tennis champ revealed on television that his team-mate Dom Inglot had a female "friend" that he was catching up with in Glasgow.

What Murray didn't know was that Inglot had a missus back home!

Well, he found it pretty funny but his team mate obviously didn't.

There's definitely going to be some explaining needed when Inglot gets back to London, poor bloke. Watch the video below.

He went from bunker to bunker to bunker before finding the green and sinking a long putt for a double-bogey 6.
