Cinderella lost her shoe and married a prince, but Lay Lay lost her shoe and won the race.
At the very start of a 200-meter race, 7-year-old Lay Lay lost her right shoe. While some would’ve given up, that was not what this schoolgirl did. Instead she went back, quickly put her shoe back on, and then sprinted fast enough to not only catch up with the rest of the runners but also pass them and ultimately win first place!
This amazing moment was captured by Lay Lay’s family who were cheering her on from the stands. The video, which has gotten thousands of views, shows how this girl powers through the racetrack determined to win. When she crosses the finish line, her family cannot contain their excitement for their little Lay Lay, and after watching that video, neither can we!
Some viewers have commented on social media that Lay Lay is the daughter of professional boxer Terence Crawford who has won many world championships. There is no doubt that Lay Lay has the blood of a winner. But what we admire the most is that she never gave up despite the difficulties she faced. You go Lay Lay!
Watch little Lay Lay not let anything get in her way in the video below, and don’t forget to share it with a friend.
