Our expert says:
We all of us do things, usually for virtuous or at least understandable reasons, which seriously embarrass us. And we need to learn to get through that and get over it. Lets not assume that everyone will know about this ; or that everyone who does, will feel the need to mock her ( many will be thinking : Crumbs, what if it had happened to me ! ) Work with her to select a calm and dignified response that can deflect any snide remarks she does encounter. Something like : " Imagine, if I can only concentrate on doing just one thing at a time, how much even faster I might have run !". Or : "I must talk to my trainer - on a different diet I could do even better. Both ways." Or whatever.
The less she shows serious embarrassment the less fun it will be for any of the handful of nasty kids every school has, and the sooner it will all die down and get forgotten
