Just when you think you have it all, life happens. You can ask this cyclist about his first hand experience with this phenomenon. As you can see on the footage he was too keen to celebrate victory before he even crossed the finish line and the other guy saw his chance and went for it. If you watch the lady on the right behind the barriers in the few last seconds of the video her reaction pretty much sums up ours and probably the wannabe victor’s feelings.
But we all have a little shadenfreude in us, don’t we?
