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.

Did high jump. Instead of a bar to jump over the school used a piece of string with black and white foam attached to it, and instead of one crash mat, we had two pushed together covered in tarp.

Not bad for a private school that increased its fees yearly above inflation.

Foot caught on rope. Landed in between two mats. Two poles fell down in perfect unison and twatted me on the head simultaneously, and I couldn't get out from in between the mats.

I later got dropped on my head.

Wheelchairs are faster than I thought.
