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'm proud to say that I've never actually competed in a Sports Day event but when I was in Secondary School we always had to train for certain events during our P.E lessons, even if we weren't actually competing in them. Myself and my circle of friends never cared much for school spirit so one afternoon during a cross country (run through the local woods) training session we decided to walk the entire circuit to see who could get the slowest time. We knew that such activities would result in a bollocking from the homosexual P.E teachers so we all agreed that we'd use the excuse that one of our group had suffered an Athsma attack and that we'd all walked back together out of concern.

We all arrived back at the school some time later, we'd come in last by about ten minutes and were quite proud of ourselves, that was until we were all dragged into the P.E treachers office and given the biggest bollocking ever followed by an hours detention.

The reason behind said bollocking? Someone in the class had accused us of cheating by taking a shortcut.
