amateur athlete fail gifs

It’s no secret that we here at Total Pro Sports love animated GIFs, especially when they show athletes failing miserably at whatever sport they are playing. However, the vast majority of the time, the fail GIFs we show you feature professional athletes. That’s mostly because it’s fun to make fun of rich people who are better than us, but also a little bit because there’s more of that content to go around.

Today, however, we’re going to give amateur athletes some love. And obviously, by “love” I mean we’re all going to have a good laugh at them. Not in a mean-spirited way, of course. More like a “wow am I glad no one ever caught my sports fails on tape” kind of way.

But enough with the reading of words already. Let’s start laughing, shall we?


37. Toe-Breaker

soccer kick fail

I thought we should kick this list off with something really special, and this GIF certainly fits that bill. It’s literally one of the best things in the history of the internet.


36. Weezy Fall Down

lil wayne skateboard fail

This probably wouldn’t be so amusing if this weren’t a ridiculously rich hip hop superstar.


35. Base Running Skills

little leaue baserunning fail

Don’t worry, kid. Happens to the best of them.


34. Pure Incompetence


I guess it’s not so much the kid who isn’t paying attention who is funny, but the kid who just cannot deal with this s#!% anymore.


33. Parkour Fail 1

Parkour: it’s not for everybody…


32. Parkour Fail 2

…and it’s especially not for this guy. He really should be wearing a helmet.


31. Playground Gymnastics Fail

Beautiful work on the bar, but he didn’t quite stick the landing.


30. Pole on Pole Violence

pole vaulting fail

Good God. Let’s hope he at least won the competition with that vault.


29. Adventures in Stupidity

skateboard basketball fail

Dude, the hoops is at eye level. You don’t need to jump.


28. Freestyle Ski Fail

skiing rail fail

Who hit the eject button?


27. Not Structurally Sound


How was that thing attached, anyway? With duct tape? That’s just shoddy engineering.


26. Play at the Plate


It looks like this guy actually hurt himself, and yet I’m still laughing. What’s wrong with me?


25. Watch Where You're Going

Note the reaction of the guy on the left in the orange jacket. Whoa is right, man.


24. Planned Failure

Even though this one was surely planned this way, it was still pretty amazing.


23. Unicycle Basketball Gone Wrong

Honestly, what did they expect when they decided to play unicycle basketball?


22. Vault Fail

This poor girl got a little too much air on that vault…


21. EPIC Vault Fail

…and this girl just did not get enough. That. Is. Embarrassing.


20. Beginner

lame skateboard fail

You have to expect some pain when trying to perfect an advanced skateboarding trick like this, right?


19. High Dive Belly Flop

It looks like this guy chickened out about two feet off the platform…not that I blame him.


18. HS Football Celebration Fail

high school football celebration fail

Here I come guys!!!


17. MMA Reject

kickboxing fail

Is this guy blind in one eye? Seems like he has some depth perception issues.


16. The Moving BMX Ramp

That van is moving pretty fast. At what point did this seem like a good idea?


15. Timing Needs Work

kid diving fail

Oh kid, you are the best. Just the best. Better luck next time.


14. Batting Practice


All you little brothers out there know how this feels, don’t you?


13. Golf Rage Fail

Check yo’self before you wreck yo’self, bro. Do some yoga or something and calm down.


12. Gatorade Shower Fail

gatorade shower gif

The fail here is twofold. Part one: thinking it is a good idea to do a Gatorade shower on a polished basketball floor. Part two: not lifting the jug high enough and basically pouring all the liquid right at the coach’s feet.


11. Backflip Fail

flip fail

No, forget that kid jumping in the pool. This kid is the best.

Keep up the good work, buddy.


10. Worst. False. Start. Ever.

epic false start fail

If you’re about to start a race and you suddenly find yourself breakdancing, something has gone horribly wrong.


9. Poorly Conceived, Poorly Executed

basketball dunk fail

I hope this kid’s parents’ have insurance.


8. Poorly Conceived, Poorly Executed...The Sequel

basketball funk chair fail

If you look very closely, you’ll notice that her foot hit the bottom of the seat of that chair. So, you know, this stunt failed pretty much right out of the gate.


7. Karma

basketball trick play fail

That’s what you get for trying this in a game. You’re not the Harlem Globetrotters.


6. Slippery When Wet

diving board fail

Well that’s an unconventional dive.


5. Silly, Silly Man

fat guy skateboarding fail

I don’t know about you, but I just watched this for three straight minutes, and it was all I could do to pull myself away and type this sentence.


4. LIke Basketball on Ice


“I don’t know, bro, the court is still pretty slick.”


3. Epic Nutshot

skateboard nutshot

Well, I guess he’ll never have any kids.


2. Epic Diving Board Fail

worst dive ever

Okay, for real this time, forget those last two kids I said were the best. It’s obvious that this kid is, in fact, the best. I just can’t get enough of this one.


1. Epic High Jump Fail

worst high jump ever

This must have been the most embarrassing moment of her life, don’t you think?
