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.

Cross country scars
Sports days clearly hold little trauma in comparison to cross country. The teaching scum at my school saw it as character building, which is OK if the character you are building is a knuckle headed wuckfit like them. Managed to stave off asthma most of the way round only to discover that one of my pals had had a petit mal seizure half way around the course, which lead to him completing the course supported and pushed by our big fat PE instructor, since the left side of his body no longer functioned.

Private fuckin schools. Save your money people.
