    I wouldn't say that it's crippling, I just wanted to be dramatic. But thanks.

    When I was about half that age, I was in another race (a normal one) which I was also about to win, but I saw the tape at the finishing line up ahead and was afraid to cross it. So instead, I slowed down to let the guy in the lane next to me win and I came second.
    Oh dear I can sort of sympathise with that in a way

    Life lesson: don't underestimate anything.

    In year 5, I was one of two pupils selected to represent the school in "Town Sports". My event being the obstacle course. Back in PE lessons, we used to practice with some pretty big hurdles, waist height for me at least. But upon entering the cauldron of the Waltham Forest Pool and Track (an official site which will be used by 2012 Olympians for training purposes), I noted the ridiculously low height of the hurdles and suddenly felt very confident: "dey only go up to my ankles blud" [this kind of slang was not commonplace back in the year 1997, but if it were, I'm sure that's what I would have said]

    Cue the race. It was a tough old contest. The best of the best from the borough. They said I was leading when we came up to the hurdles. Nice and easy, you don't even have to jump these. That's where I lost it. The moment I was caught off guard was the moment I will never forget. I replay the incident over and over in my mind. A trailing leg clipping the hurdle, it could only have been a matter of millimetres, but it was enough. Enough to send the crowd favourite tumbling to the ground, and with only one more obstacle to go, the race was over. Lost then and there. I soldiered on determined to finish, the troops of St Mary's C of E rallying to the side of me. The damage, however, had been well and truly done.
    A similar thing happened to me.

    Year 5. I was in the inter-school athletics team, for the 75 metre sprint. By the 50 metre mark, I was ahead by at least 5 metres, which was when the young gap-student I had a mild crush on caught my eye. She was shouting "come on Max! YOU'RE WINNING". I smiled a gleeful smile. But my attention was already distracted from the running. I subconsciously edged over towards the left lane, and when I realised what I'd done, I swung my left foot back into my lane, placing it just in front of the right foot.
    I kicked myself in the ankle.
    I tripped.
    I watched as seven people rushed past me and finished the race.
    I got up.
    I walked the last three metres across the finish line.
    I heard a distant voice shouting "8th!".
    I cried. :sigh:
