The mom who fell over while taking part in a parents race at her kids sports day, flashed her behind to everyone and then went viral online – says she will never again participate in a parents race.
Katie Hannaford attended her eight-year-old daughters school for the sports event.
In the now-viral video, the mom from England can be seen in a race with what appears to be other parents.
Apparently her daughter convinced her the race would be a good idea…
Things get off to a great start, with Hannaford from Essex racing onwards.
Then, things take a turn for the worse…
Only seconds into the race, the 36-year-old falls headfirst, landing with her bum in the air.
Unfortunately for her, the blue dress she’s wearing comes up over her head, revealing her underwear for all to see including teachers, other parents and kids.
In the background, you can see a few kids turn around as the unfortunate incident happened.
Kids sports day 😂 just had to share 😂
While she was embarrassed at first (wouldn’t we all be), the mom from Essex then went on to laugh about the incident. She said:
“I’m not sporty at all, but [my daughter] kept begging me,”
“In the end I agreed to the race – I knew I’d come last.”
“I just tripped over my own feet – I think my body was just moving too fast for my legs! I’m so clumsy, I’m always falling over”
“I was humiliated at the time, but it is what it is! I flashed my underwear which is obviously embarrassing but you just have to own it.”
“Looking back, it’s hilarious – definitely the funniest thing I’ve ever done in my life!”
“When the kids got more at sports day than they were expecting! Haha.”
“If you can’t laugh at yourself then what’s life about ay! Sorry kiddo’s and anyone else watching!”
She has since updated LadBible that:
“My oldest daughter was watching sports day with myself and some other school mum friends.
“The staff mentioned a parents race over the tannoy and Tegan, my oldest, said ‘Go on mum, you always did it for me’.”
“Once they asked for parents to join in my youngest Beau across the field was saying, ‘Come on mum do it’.”
“Another mum and I agreed to join in,” Katie revealed, “I was dreading it but thought ‘Oh, it’s a bit of fun, why not?’”
After the hilarious incident happened and was filmed by a fellow parent, Katie shared that she was left in ‘utter shock’:
“I couldn’t believe it,” she revealed.
“I shared the video on a parenting group to give other parents a laugh as it really could have happened to anyone and we all need a good laugh sometimes.
“From there, it was re-shared thousands of times and I couldn’t believe my eyes when all these notifications were coming through but each time it just made me laugh.”
She added that she would not be repeating for the next parents race:
“…as much as it was good fun I think my running days are over!”
