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.

One sports day, Cha was in elementary school...
It wasn't so much "sports day" as "put a bunch of kiddy pools in the playground and hope for the best" day.
Of course, I was like eight and excited like crazy and it was all anyone had been talking about for roughly nine millenia, and I could not wait.
The day came, oh joy
I was sitting on the asphalt basically suicidal, on the hottest day of the year, watching everyone else cavort around in the pools, splashing each other, blowing bubbles, and generally being smug little asshats.

Worst part? I got the most horrifically painful sunburn ever. I can still feel it. Yeesh. Fuck you, splash day.
