» School Sports Day

and yet I never swam competitvely again...
I skipped all but one of my high school swimming carnivals(to go to the beach and work on my tan no less) because (a)the sports master was a touchy feely bastard, and (b)I was too scared to dive, but too ashamed to jump into the pool.

The only day I did attend I mustered up the courage to dive off the block, swam under water feeling invincible for oh, 30 seconds, came up and began swimming at a leisurely pace.

Soon after I heard a whistle and splashing behind me - the boys race had begun while I was still at about the halfway point. I was soon overtaken by the boy swimming in my lane, but by the time I completed my lap I was judged as having come first in the *following* girls race.

I got a nice blue ribbon and was automatically entered in the district finals.
