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.

Blue Team
Coming from a very competitive family, sport days at school were something of a do or die moment for myself.

In my teachers never ending wisdom they made me captain of the Blue Team. I did not take failure to lightly.

I was stripped of my captaincy after punching a young lad that had finished 3rd in his 100m sprint, chucking the baton at the teacher for calling the relay a draw and basically berating everybody in the other colour houses.

PS: My team ended up winning the day by a huge margin, which I took full credit for.

PPS: My brother captained the Blue team after me. He also was stripped of the captains role.
