High school sprinter, Makenna Kroge, from Wisconsin, USA, was set up and ready to race but face planted when her feet slipped off the starting blocks.

She tried to get up and keep going as gracefully as she could, but took another fall before running the race – she came last, but she’s still our hero.

Makenna’s mum filmed the race and is heard calling out, “Are you okay honey?”

The tweet has racked up over 20,000 retweets and 21,000 favourites since being posted by Makenna’s friend Lexi.
