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.

The 100m
When I was younger I was ace at the 100m & held the school record for fastest time. But then I discovered boys and spliffs. Fast-forward to when I was 17 on sports day and had gotten out of competing in everything, gorgeous sunny day, great big skive with pals. I snuck off and toked a massive skunky bifta and on my return discovered that whoever was running in the 100m had gone home poorly. So yes, I had to run it...totally boxed. I came 2nd last and only just beat the fat girl who came behind me.
