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.

Makng a point of being last ,
When I started at school everyone got split into forms to spell out our school (Walney),anyways, i was put into form E 9(btw there wasnt enough for a Y form) our first years sports day my form were useless and came last, in the second year we came last so it was decided that we would make a special effort and finish last for the rest of the annual sport days. The last two sport days i will never forget the look of our form tutor near enough crying as we came last by a long long way not sure if he was embarressed by coming last every year or our complete lack off care (toss) at any of the sports on offer

Apologies for nothing i dont hang around long enough to let them speak !
