When I was in 9th grade, our Invitational tournament was on April 1st. Since I was doing 5 events and I was confident that I was gonna medal in them, my friends and I made a plan to tell my coach that I couldn't compete because I was really sick.
It turns out that I really did get really sick (fever, vomiting, achey, etc), but I refused to stay home so I went anyway and got 3 gold, 1 silver, and 1 bronze =).
But yeah, the joke was on me I suppose.
