The mother who accidentally made the whole crowd on her daughter’s sports day has lifted the lid on the unfortunate accident. See the error here:
Video of Katie Hannaford, 36, went viral early after she fell and made teachers, parents and students look alike at a school event.
Her eight-year-old daughter convinced her to go on the run because she wanted her mother so badly to take part, though she probably regrets the decision deeply now.
Luckily, homewares company owner Katie saw the funny side, and although she was embarrassed at first, she now finds the whole thing ‘cute’.
“I’m not sporty at all, but [my daughter] kept begging me,” he said. “In the end I agreed to race – I knew I would come last.”
Katie continued: “I just tripped over my own feet – I thought my body was just moving too fast for my feet! I was so clumsy, I was always falling.
“I was humiliated back then but I was! I was showing off my underwear which was obviously embarrassing but you have to have it.
“Looking back, it was hilarious – definitely the funniest thing I’ve ever done in my life!”
He found it so funny, in fact, he shared the clip on his Facebook page, writing: “When kids get more on sports day than they expect! Haha.
“If you can’t laugh at yourself, then what’s the point of living? Sorry kids and everyone else watching!”
In the hilarious video, the mother of Basildon in Essex lined up in the third lane from the left as the audience cheered on the participants.
They started well, but only seconds later Katie lost her footing and stumbled headfirst onto the court, leaving her ass dangling in the air.
Unfortunately, her light blue dress appeared above her head and exposed her panties for all to see.
In the background, a number of children quickly turned around when they realized what had happened.
It didn’t take long for the post to go viral, with hundreds of people commenting on the hilarious fall.
“I thought it was a great attempt to post this and a great view for the kids,” one joked, while another said, “Omg Katie, the more I watch it, the more I laugh.”
A third chimed in: “I laughed more this morning than I did last night.”
