USA! USA! US ... oh shit.
It happened at the Peachtree 10k race in Atlanta on July Fourth, where you'd pretty much expect the stars to align and allow the guy with the stars and stripes track uni to be the victor.
It could have happened like that, except 'Merica got cocky. Ben Payne of the U.S. had the lead while closing in on the tape, but began celebrating a bit early, allowing Britain's Scott Overall to overtake him. Overall won by 9/100ths of a second.
