Man Celebrates Triathlon Win A Few Steps Short

French athlete Jeremy Jurkiewicz celebrates a little too early at a Brazilian triathlon, CNN's John Berman reports.

Just feet from crossing the finish line, the Frenchman decides to enjoy his victory while another runner Igor Amorelli comes up from behind.

The man sees the chance for victory and sprints toward the finish line but Jurkiewicz realizes just in time and almost seems to try to pull the other guy back, before crossing the line himself.

He wins the triathlon and Berman's award for Thursday:

"Don't Count Your Poulets Before They Hatch."
