Runner Loses Bronze Medal After Celebrating Too Early
American distance runner Molly Huddle lost to fellow American Emily Infeld after celebrating too early in the 10,000 meter race at the World Athletics Championships in Beijing.
“It’s painful to watch,” Huddle told Johnson on Universal Sports. “Emily slipped on the inside as I eased up a little bit. She had this once-in-a-lifetime moment. I feel like it kind of slipped through my fingers. … The Olympics are typically a hard race, not a tactical one, so this probably won’t ever come around again.”
