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.

The dreaded cross country run.
This was a complete joke. All the (sensible) people walked the course or made half-hearted attempts to run when the teachers were looking. Only a favoured few actually ever bothered to try & make a good time. Alistair however, had other ideas.

Alistair lived on the route of the run & had taken the time to pop into his house & fetch his moped. Much 2-stroke hilarity ensued for the duration (the teachers & athletic sorts having finished ages ago) with Ali zipping up & down the line of stragglers shouting encouragement. Unfortunately he was spotted concealing the moped in a hedge just before the finish line & was suspended. How we wheezed!

Oh, & I believe that my friends & I managed to have our periods every week for the whole of the 5th Year.

Laugh? We nearly bled to death.
