You should have stayed in your lane! The Ethiopian runner thinks he has won a 5,000 meter race and is celebrating to the crowd … before he realizes that there is still a LAP to go
- Hagos Gebrhiwet suffered embarrassment during Friday's Diamond League meeting
- As the leader of the 5,000m men's race, he started his & # 39; victory & # 39; to celebrate in Lausanne
- However, there was still a round to go and he eventually finished 10th

The Ethiopian thought that on Friday he claimed the glory of the Diamond League in the 5,000m race in Lausanne on Friday.
Approach to the start-finish line, Gebrhiwet powered by thinking he had won the event.
Hagos Gebrhiwet suffered a major shame during Friday's Diamond League meeting
The Ethiopian thought he had won the 5,000m men's race in Lausanne, Switzerland
After crossing the start-finish line he started to celebrate – not knowing that there was another round
Inexplicably, however, he failed to acknowledge that the groundbreaking employee rang the doorbell to indicate that he and his fellow wives were now at the start of the race.
With his focus clearly elsewhere, the 25-year-old eased as he passed the starting line and began to swing from the inner lane to the outer edge of the lane.
While he raised his arms to the crowd in Switzerland in triumph, it only took seven seconds before he understood his serious mistake.
At the moment it was too little, too late since his countryman Yomif Kejelcha had flown past him to take the lead around the penultimate turn of the track.

As he closed off to the crowd to celebrate, he was unaware that the race had not ended
But it turned out to be too little, too late when his countryman Yomif Kejelcha flew past him to win the race
Gebrhiwet rejoined the race, but had lost the momentum and could not catch Kejelecha, the holder of the world-long mileage record, who raced for victory at 13: 56.56.
It became even worse for Gebrhiwet when he finished in 10th place in a disappointing time of 13: 09.59.
Gebrhiwet, who claimed bronze during the Rio Games 2016 2016, hopes that he will not repeat this at the Olympic Games in Tokyo next year.
