If there’s one way to make your child proud, it’s by taking part in – and of course, winning – the parent-running race on the school’s sports day. One kid – and her mom – will however be permanently scarred after the mom, who participated in the parent race, not only lost but fell face-first to the ground.
To make matters worse, during the fall, her dress was lifted over her head leaving her exposed backside open for the world to see.
Mom left mortified after face-planting AND mooning crowd during school race
A mom, her daughter and those in the crowd will probably never recover from an incident that saw her bum being exposed after falling during a school race.
According to Katie Hannaford, 36, from Basildon in Essex, her 8-year-old daughter convinced her to do the run despite her reservations and it actually started off quite well.
“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.”
Just seconds later, she lost her footing and plummeted to the ground face-first leaving her butt in the air as her dress lifted over her head due to the fall.
“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,” she said, per a LadBible article.

A shocked crowd and a red-faced mother
Naturally, those in the crowd couldn’t believe their eyes as they realised what happened. Katie said she was initially embarrassed but now looks back and laughs at the situation.
“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!”
In fact, she’s so over it that she took to Facebook to share the hilarious video with her friends.
As you’ve probably guessed, it went viral as hundreds of people shared their comments about it and had a good laugh.
