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 used to run 400m and 800m... Badly, but still better than most of the rest of the kids.

After running both of these one sports day, i was then told i'd been entered for the 1500m as well... Our house (yes I went to private school) needed just a few points to win... Finishing above last would be fiiiiine.

So I ended up feigning a hamstring pull after the second lap (whilst a few good metres in the lead...) because I just couldn't be fucked.

I ended faking a limpp around school, perfectly, for 3 weeks...

Sorry for the lack of Linford Christie like length/girth
