* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, the Assassins' Guild School elevates sport to a level where the trainee Assassin is expected to deploy all their skills in the pursuit of victory. Well, ''almost'' all. Competitive running races in track and field - normally bloodless - become something of a passion to Mariella Smith-Rhodes, a distance runner who finds herself fighting battles with an equally gifted peer which become to-the-wire duels of their wits, enduarance, and ability to read a situation. To her surprise, Mariella finds that she passionately cares about winning. Her [[DarkestAfrica Howondalandian]] nemesis feels the same way too.
