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.

wasn't much good myself, the odd 2nd 3rd and 4th in primary school, mostly joint 1sts in 100metres and 2nd in hurdles....every year. never won any kinda trophy, except for when i won the swimming championship for us girls with anoter girl in my year....still haven't received the trophy....after 5 years....god damn it!
aaaanyway, sports day, year 12. wasn't allowed to compete (was supposed to 'help', as the crap ones always did) appart from the 6th form relay which i did in the most tiny shorts ever (which were my sisters) got the attention of the teacher i liked (:)) and won my leg...and then the fun came.
Teacher relay - geography teacher, we'll call him Mr. A. His leg was the first. Gun went off, Mr A starts running...about 5 steps, turns the corner on the 6th step and trips, falls to the ground, batton goes flying into the air, Mr A rolls off the trach and onto the grass where he finally stops in a heap. Crowd roars with laughter. One of the funniest days of my life! :)
