Watch: American runner celebrates too early, loses bronze medal
Monday August 24th, 2015

This is when track and field is at its best. 

You can keep your Usain Bolts and amazing feats of athleticism. Extra Mustard wants to see really awkward displays of celebrations leading to immeasurable sadness.

At least, that's what we assume American runner Molly Huddle feels Monday, after she celebrated too early at the end of her race only to see another runner pass her by and steal the bronze medal. 

CHAVEZ: Infeld stuns Huddle to win bronze in 10,000 meters

Well, at least the runner isn't someone she has to see again. What's that? It was her teammate?

Well, at least this wasn't a very long race or something. What's that? It was 10,000 meters?

Well, at least this wasn't a fairly important event. Wait, it was the world championships? 

Yeah, this was pretty bad. You can watch victory slip away from Huddle below:
