This is a question School Sports Day

At some point in the distant past, someone at my school had built a large concrete tank behind the sheds and called it a swimming pool. Proud of this, they had a "Swimming Sports Day" in which everyone had to participate, even those who couldn't swim (they got to walk across the shallow end of the tank).

This would probably have been OK if the pool hadn't turned a deep opaque green the night before due to lack of maintainance. Even the school sports stars didn't want to go near the gloopy mess in the pool. We were practically pushed in. I'm sure some of the younger kids never surfaced again and the non-swimmers looked petrified.

Tell us your sports day horrors.

Rampaging Teacher...
Oh yes - I remember one school sports day in the Danish school system. This school was for students aged 15-18.

Every year we had a sports day to welcome the new pupils, and in order to show the teacher's "human side" they would also have a team joining in.

We were playing this stupid game called "Tjuck Ball" - like handball but instead of having a goal each team would have a small angled trampoline - one would score by catching the rebound.

One of the new pupils - a young, nice-looking, shy girl - accidentily stepped across the line marking the area which one was not allowed to enter.

One of the teachers saw this, and threw the biggest fit: "What the fuck are you doing? You're not supposed to be inside the marked area, that's what the line is there for! How would you like it if I started cheating? Like if I started pushing you around?!?"

The 40-year-old teacher then proceeded to push the horrified 15-year-old girl around - with the look of a madman on his face.

The teachers team won the match - we didn't really feel like competing anymore.

(The same day one of my friends broke his arm in our no-contact, no dribbling version of basketball. The wimp! We still laugh at the story... we laugh, not him.)
