Mum mortified as she moons crowd at sports day after falling in race

A “clumsy” mum faceplanted during a sports day race and mooned the watching crowd. Katie Hannaford was left red-faced after her eight-year-old convinced her to run. 

Footage shows the mum, from Basildon, Essex, lining up in the third lane from the left. The race then starts and Katie, who is in a blue dress, drops to the back – before falling to the floor. 

Unfortunately, her dress comes up over her head and reveals her underwear – for all the crowd to see. 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.”

The mum added: “I just tripped over my own feet – I think my body was just moving too fast for my legs!” She continued: “I’m so clumsy, I’m always falling over.”

Katie, seeing the funny side, continued: “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.”

And she has no regrets. She added: “Looking back, it’s hilarious – definitely the funniest thing I’ve ever done in my life!”
