We may not all be athletes, but who hasn’t experienced a lost bathing suit when diving, a ripped pair of shorts when reaching for a ball or tripping over our own pant legs? Maybe you left the washroom with unbuttoned or unzipped clothing and trailing toilet paper behind you. Life is full of embarrassing moments and luckily when we get caught, it’s usually around friends and family. Not so if you’re a famous athlete and the world is watching. To make our point, here are some memorable moments in sports.
Nicklas Helenius Losing Shorts
It’s tough enough scoring in the best of situations, but kudos to Aston Villa forward Nicklas Helenius for giving it a try with his shorts at half mast. Jan Vertonghen, Tottenham defender, got too much information on this move. Amazingly, the referees must have been asleep as no penalty was called.
Here we have well-known Australian surfer Stephanie Gilmore giving us some of her moves. The Bondi Beach waters were wild and probably tried to snag her top. Thankfully, (or not), Stephanie’s amazing reflexes kicked in to save a potentially embarrassing day.
Another Slippery Slope
Poor Gillian Cooke. We’re sure she didn’t mean to moon everyone watching this during a trial bobsled run in 2010. It must have been a butt-cold ride down.
Too Much Sun Exposure
Is he trying out a new aerodynamic swimsuit or is this the latest rage selective tanning? Maybe it’s some mysterious propulsion advantage? We have to get to the bottom of this.
A Ripping Time At Sochi
Seems like cold weather can make rips in stockings. Here’s an Asian figure skating couple wonderfully ignoring an embarrassing moment while executing some exceptional moves. We think in this case, they clearly had a leg up on the competition.
Pep In Step
Pep Guardiola is an intense kind of guy. And though he looks great in a shirt and tie, he probably should have worn a track suit during a UEFA Champions League match. Seems that he lost total control – of his pants.
Does Venus Have A Moon
Although Venus has her own line of upscale athletic gear, she’s still not immune to the change of winds and breezes. Tennis also demands a lot of drops, hops and agile moves, so it comes as no surprise that it can be a revealing sport. All we can say is – thank you, Venus.
Lingerie Football League
Finally, someone has figured out how to make one of the greatest sports even greater. We present the Lingerie Football League, featuring skimpily clad teams who’ve taken tackling to a new dimension. We pray they don’t suffer turf burns, but if they do, we’re sure there are plenty of spectators willing to sooth the pain.
A Wild Bike Ride
Sometimes less is more. Clearly, this Colombian cycling team doesn’t feel the same way or maybe, it was for want of some media coverage. Although skin colored uniforms are a fashion blunder they certainly can draw some attention.
Jockeying For Position
What a tactic to keep other riders from coming up he rear (excuse the pun). Actually, Australia’s jockey, Blake Shinn, was just as surprised as everyone when his pants went south. Nevertheless, he did finish a close second, though he should have won just for the entertainment value.
Where In The World Is Torotno
We guess that assembly line stitching is a bit like baseball. You can’t always hit a home run. In this case we have The Toronto Blue Jays momentarily known as the Torotno Blue Jays. and the players just have to grin and bear it.
Christopher Spring Has Sprung
Here’s bobsledder Christopher Spring trying on his outfit just before a race. He thought it was a bit tight on him. To share his opinion he tweeted this image – hairy belly and all.
