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.

unofficial archery
normal sportsday deal, those who are involved, race, those who arent amble around the school field due to the 'afternoon off but not able to go home' policy

chap called wayne steel (you couldnt make it up i didnt) decided that he would be a little more industrious than normal and not being involved meant this creativity found an outlet in 'classroom weaponry'

he took a scale ruler, one of those things that had three edges. he made a notch in one edge about an inch from the end. into this he inserted a thick rubber band, which he looped over the end of the ruler into the dip on the top side of the ruler.

his arrow was a long needle compass, pulled out flat.

when fired, it buried itself with such speed and precision, that the first year it hit didnt realise it was in his thigh until a mate pointed it out.

i came third in the 1500 the same day, but received less attention from the police.
