Shania Twain's hilarious sporting mishap is caught on camera

The singer was taken by surprise

Shania Twain had an uplifting message of support for the Canadian Beijing Olympics team on Thursday, but it was her never-before-seen video of herself which stole the show. 

The country music star took to Instagram with a sweet note of support for the 2022 team - including snowboarder Laurie Blouin - in which she spoke to the camera about the importance of warming up before performing.

Shania made fun of her skiing skills by sharing video of the tumble

Shania's appearance in the video in which she was bundled up in warm ski gear and a crash helmet, was in stark contrast to a clip she shared earlier in the week. 

She took a trip down memory lane, reliving an iconic photo with her former band, Longshot.

Shania has sported a variety of show-stopping looks over the years 

What's more, the country star rocked a perm and short bangs, a hairstyle the singer has previously admitted regretting.

In an article for Refinery 29, the award-winning singer looked back on her career and wrote about the advice she would give her 26-year-old self.

"No perms," she wrote. "Never get a perm. And if you do, make sure they don’t over-curl. It was so in fashion, but my hair just didn't take to it well."
