A heartwarming story from a UK school’s Sports Day has gone viral after a mother shared her daughter’s experience on Mumsnet. The eight-year-old, who has dyspraxia, was given a head start in the sack race with the help of her teachers. Despite coming last in the race, another parent complained that the child had an unfair advantage. The incident was referred to the school governors, but the Mumsnet community rallied around the mother, with one user saying, “It’s a kids’ sports day, not 100m with Usain Bolt.” The mother said her daughter was just happy to take part and didn’t care about winning. Let’s all cheer for this inspiring young athlete!
