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.

Yes - my school was that posh. Well, not really.

One year there was an orienteering competition and only one person "could" read a map. Anyway, we followed him a bit until we realised he was even more clueless than the rest of us (quite an achievement). We abandoned him and found our own way to nowhere in particular - our team came about 3rd...

Several hours later our intrepid explorer finds his way back to school, hungry and looking like shit - the teachers hadn't bothered going looking for him cos "He'll turn up eventually".

Needless to say we ripped it out of him for ages - he was known as "pathfinder" for ages - he grew to accept it!

Ian (Eon) - you're a star!!
