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.

I hold no illusions of being a sports star
however, no one else in my class at school was one either. This meant that in my year 6 school sports day I actually did rather well; winning a couple of events and coming in at respectable places in the others, earning me a 'gold award' (unsurpisingly, the best they had on offer). I recieve my award and notice that written in the little box to explain what I had done to earn the treasure my teacher had written "tried hard in some events"

I hate to think what people who got the silver or bronze awards got.
