A schoolgirl who lost her shoe at the start of a 200-meter race still managed to win after staging a remarkable comeback - and it was all caught on camera.

The girl lost her right sneaker just as the race began. Rather than pull out of the sprint, she decided to go back and put it back on.

The youngster was being cheered on by family members who were filming her from some distance away in the stands.

They noticed the girl named Lay Lay, was in trouble within a second of the start of the race, as the girl's right shoe came off.

It took seven seconds of fumbling as she ran back to slip her foot back into her running shoe before embarking on the race of her life.

The girl powered around the racetrack in a desperate bid to catch up with her competitors.

Excited relatives could be heard cheering the girl as she rounded the final turn and appeared to catch up with the rest of her competitors.

As she powered down the home straight, her supporters could be heard going wild with excitement as she took the lead in a spectacular performance.

The delay cost her second precious seconds but she still carried on running and won the race

Relatives went wild as Lay Lay crossed the finish line. They could be heard recounting what they had just witnessed, namely that the girl had lost her shoe and still managed to win.

The video was posted to Twitter and YouTube where it has racked up more than one million views.

Some have commented on social media how Lay Lay is the daughter of professional boxer Terrence Crawford who has held multiple world championships, including the WBO welterweight title since 2018.

Crawford has three sons and three daughters one of whom is indeed named Lay Lay.

Great to see this, good show Lay Lay. 

She may have received that spirit from her Dad, who is probably the best pound-for-pound fighter (boxer) in the world today.

I admire perseverance.  There are those who quit and those who persevere - and the latter become the winners.  I have seen it even with the participants in my movie quizzes.  However, There can be exceptions to that.  In some circumstances, perseverance can be a disaster not only for themselves but for others as well.

No wonder there is a dunny (toilet) roll shortage in this country..
