They are athletes and gymnasts in their own right, but even the most professional cheerleaders can have some mishap. From catastrophic plants from the face to accidentally suggestive poses – see the lady upstairs – these cheerleading failures will make you laugh, grimace and, in some cases, let you need a little lie.
Sometimes cheerleaders get so caught up in acting that they forget a camera might be watching. Look at this ballerina, who’s so in the zone she’s forgotten her sexy-cool face.
If you’re happy and you know it, applaud. This girl clearly cannot believe her luck of being chosen for the cheerleading team – that pure, unbridled joy is not being contained.
With lots of practice cheerleaders can glide through the air as gracefully and effortlessly as a gazelle. Their landings, however, are not always as smooth, as the painful expression of this type shows.
