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.

High jump... Low blow...
Wasn't a sports day but a PE lesson when we were training for the high jump, our sports teach was a tall fella and I at the time was just a mite. So we were practising for the high jump and the teacher would hold his hand in the air and you had to attempt to kick it while jumping over the bar. Being all pscyed up I went for it, I really did, but alas as i was about to jump I slipped, midway through a kick, hit the PE Teacher square in the nuts, I can still hear that groan. He wasn't to fond of me after that but I think it scarred me more.

Also hit the same guy in the nuts with a rugby ball a few years later (Think "Football in the groin" from the Simpsons)
