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.

Sports day qualifiers
At my school, we had qualifiers for the sports day, which meant getting out of classes to run around on the playing fields. However, as I was a fat lazy twunt at school, and (as I thought) smarter than the average bear, I used to opt out of going to the qualifiers, thereby avoiding having to run around pointlessly and waste valuable energy. And because virtually everyone else took the opportunity to get out of classes, there were too few of us left to make it worthwhile for the teacher to take the lesson. So those of us remaining used to get to sit on our fat arses and do nothing.

Furthermore, come sports day itself, because I hadn't entered for any events, I could wander around at will and perv on all the fit birds running about in very short shorts (this was the '80s) and tight t-shirts.


The downside of course is that none of them took any interest in me, being a fat lazy git. It was only many years later that I lost weight and started taking any exercise! No apologies for girth nowadays though.
