Woman Who Mooned Crowd At Sports Day Wins Trophy

Woman Who Mooned Crowd At Sports Day Wins Trophy

Luckily, Katie saw the funny side of the incident

A woman who mooned the crowd during a parents' sports day has been given a trophy... shaped like her bum.

Katie Hannaford, 36, from Essex, had a shock when a clip of her tripping and falling during the event went viral online last week.

You can watch the clip below:

Mum-of-two Katie, who owns home décor business Home of Hearts, ended up tripping while running - and accidentally mooned the crowd cheering on the side lines.

Katie had decided to join the run last week after she was convinced by her eight-year-old daughter to take part along with the other parents.

Following the viral clip, Katie has been presented with a 'Bottoms Up' trophy shaped like her own behind, to commend her on her sportsmanship following the viral mishap.

"I knew something was being sent, but had no idea what - until it arrived in the post!" says Katie.

Katie tripped and mooned the crowd during the parents' sports day.

"I think it's so great - it's the perfect gift to remember it all. It's been crazy since the video went viral but I have loved every minute."

Katie said the trophy brought a 'new level of laughter' when it arrived in the post and confirmed it is now in pride of place in her bedroom.

Elle Courtonel, Trophies Plus Medals' social media manager, said: "We loved hearing about Katie’s story at her daughter’s school sports day – it made our day!

"We felt she deserved her own award despite not making it to the finish line. We designed the Bottom’s Up trophy and medal especially for Katie, as a thank you for making the nation smile.”

Katie received a trophy after the incident.

Luckily, Katie saw the funny side after she tripped over and her dress flew over her head.

"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 says.

"I was humiliated at the time, but it is what it is. You just have to own it. Looking back, it's definitely the funniest thing I've ever done in my life!"

Katie even said she was being stopped in the street and as she walked around her local supermarket, after people recognised her from the video which circulated online.

Katie saw the funny side.

"There have been a few trolls, but most people have been very positive," she continues.

"There's nothing haters can say or do that will hurt or upset me. The whole world's seen my bum, but it is what it is - I can't hide from it. I don't care!

"Now I have a trophy of it too!"
