Mum Faceplants & Moons During Sports Day Fiasco!

As parents, we're all bound to have one seriously cringeworthy moment at some point...

But in front of your child's entire school, teaching team, and other parents? Well, that's another story entirely. If you add embarrassing nudity into the mix then you've created the trifecta of circumstances that create a scenario that you'd seriously have to see to believe!

Katie Hannaford, 36, reduced the crowd at her child's school to hysteria when she took a tumble during a race for parents at her child's sports day event. Her eight year old convinced her to take part, and after much persuasion, Katie agreed - does she regret this now? Perhaps. But we'd wager that her child regrets it more!

In a moment caught on video, the race begins, but merely seconds in, poor Katie slips and falls head over heels into the grass. In a true moment of 'sod's law', her dress ends up over her head, flashing her bottom and underwear to the world. Ooops...

Many parents and children, keen to spare her blushes, politely averted their gazes to give Katie a moment to correct herself. Luckily Katie has seen the hilarious side to her sporting debacle, sharing;

"I'm not sporty at all, but [my daughter] kept begging me," she said. "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!"

She then shared the clip on her social media, not expecting that it would go viral, captioning the clip;

 "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!"

Our verdict...

We're absolutely mortified for poor Katie! How embarrassing! On the flip side, kudos to her for seeing the light side and being able to share this clip with us all for a good giggle. Fair play to her!
