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.

Swimming. urgh.
My tale of woe came only this week. I decided to sign up for the Inter-house swimming competition, which convieniently involved many-a-hot girl walking about in very little. Now I figured it was just going to be a quick splash down the pool, but I ended up being made to do the butterfly. With all the skill and tact of a drowning insect.
At least a dozen people told me that it was in fact the funniest thing they have ever seen!

but it wasnt over there. Despite losing horribly, I still managed to qualify and got to repeat the procedings the day after! Just my luck.

Oh, and my friend managed to break his own nose playing hockey, by shooting the ball into some guys foot which then flicked up into his face :D
