With that in mind, OMG Lane has scoured the web and compiled a list of what we think are 15 of the most embarrassing sporting moments of all time.

Make Or Break

When you’re trying to go for gold, it’s best you don’t drop your partner otherwise, it will look painfully awkward and end up looking like all thoughts of things but being lithe and pretty won’t be one of them.

Instead, you’ll most likely end up looking like you’ve just given birth to a man-child or a mother fed up with dealing with the shenanigans of a petulant 8-year-old.

Sometimes, the best sporting photographs capture the unpredictable nature of life in a way no other type could

This athlete evidently had other things on her mind when she donned a one-piece swimsuit.

Forgetting that her uneven tan lines from her days sunbathing in her bikini would be on display, this athlete learned a valuable truth: that sunbathing n#de is the way forward.

A sporting routine or a make-out session?

We know this is a professional sport, and we don’t wish to cast scorn on something we could never do, but this photo looks more like a scene from a Nicholas Sparks movie as opposed to a synchronized swimming routine.

Or it could simply be two athletes sharing a passionate moment together. We think we’ll go will the latter…

Out of Bounds

This one looks painful, and we don’t think she’ll get top marks for that either.

Not everyone’s race goes to plan and unless you’re one of those people who believe that it’s taking part that counts, you’re likely to be highly annoyed if you don’t finish first.

Yes, men can ogle while women can admire the men’s sun-dappled torsos. And appreciate their volleyball skills as well…..

Let’s just hope she didn’t have a sore stomach.

Why Are They Cheering?

Tania Cagnotto is an incredibly talented Italian diver who has won gold medals at the FINA world championships as well as silver and bronze at two Olympics but it was only after she had done a raunchy shoot for Playboy Italy in 2013, that she became a household name in her native country.

But why were the crowd cheering at the event she is pictured in above?

The Lingerie Football League, ladies and gentlemen…

The Lingerie Football League, which has since been rebranded “The Legends Football League,” regularly plays to packed out stadiums as seven women take on competing teams in the league, clad only in their underwear.
