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.

Secondry School Sports days
They were crap and no-one (Other than the sports obssesed kids)liked them except for it gave us the afternoon off School to watch.

One year we managed to make one lad sign a folded piece of paper that on the bit he couldn't see said 'I will streak at this years sports day'.

The lad signed it and spent the next week trying to wangle his way out of it. Strangly he didn't appear anywhere at sports day that year though the particular bit of paper appeared from somewhere every year when sports day was approaching.
