Sports Day (1971)

An essay on one boy's experience of, presumably, the Summer Sports Day in 1970.   His experience sounds just like mine,  except that I only 'ran' in things called 'heats',  which I thought were badly named since I got cold waiting for them to start,  and I never won anything,  and I didn't enjoy the experience at all.  In fact in the sixth form I asked to study Latin to 'O' level so that I would have to miss the Sports double period on Wednesdays.
