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.

Hurdles training
We gathered around the start line, every one of us daunted by the impossibly high looking hurdles ahead of us.
Never ones to give up, our PE teachers hand picked a young guy called Christian from the crowd, rather infamous as 'the weedy one', subject to some pickings-on and such.
Nevertheless, he got up, took a run, and made it. The teacher said,
"Come on, if he can do it, so can all of you!"
I've never heard a more convincing argument in my life.
