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.

Running that extra mile
When I was at little school, in the youngest year, I ran in a race.

As we were the little 'uns, at only 5 years old, we didn't have to run the whole running track. They marked out a start and and end point. We were meant to run to the end point and then stop running.

I didn't stop. I just kept on running for another 10 metres or so before a friendly adult told me I had to go back.

I bloody lost too! And, a few years later, someone sent it in to You've Been Framed, and THEY got the money, not me! Bastards!

My first ever answer of the week. Exciting, innit?
