When it comes to sports in the modern day, cameras are everywhere. On the sidelines, in the locker room and of course, on the field. And as a result, no one is safe from their embarrassing moments being seen by the world and going viral. Whether it be clumsily dropping something on the sidelines, wardrobe malfunctions or anything in between. Here are 18 of the most embarrassing sports moments caught on camera. You’ll crack up at #7!
18. Need a Hand?
Now I’m not sure who this is more embarrassing for, but there is no doubt neither of the people in this photo wanted this photo to get out. Wrestling can be an extremely tiring and adrenaline fueled contest and we often see people do whatever it takes to win, but this is simply taking it way too far.
17. Foul Ball to the Face
Now Jimmy Rollins, the man you see here getting a baseball straight to the face, is actually a really good player. But you would never know it by looking at this photo. This lucky photographer got a picture right as the foul ball ricochets right off the face of the man who hit it.
16. Full Moon
The Lingerie Football League (now the Legends Football League) is a league here scantily clad women wearing pad compete in football against each other in teams of 7. The league has been a hit among men (not shocking) and I’m sure the fans weren’t too upset when this little moment took place.
15. Trip the Hurdle
One of the toughest sports to pick up would definitely have to be hurdles racing. The fear of tripping and falling over one would be constant. However, the man in our photo had a different problem as he actually fell short of the hurdle and drilled his face right on it! Ouch.
14. The Runny Runs
Now this is a classically disgusting picture, but we had to include it. I guess this runner felt it was more important to finish the race than to stop running. While we appreciate his heart and desire to win, a trip to the toilet probably would have saved him a ton of embarrassment, and a pair of shorts.
