WATCH: Japanese pole vaulter's Olympic hopes foiled by his own penis
MANILA, Philippines - He missed his mark by just a head.
Hiroki Ogita's dream of Olympic glory was sidelined on Monday, August 15 when the Japanese pole vaulter failed to clear the 5.45m bar. Video from YouTube shows that the 28-year-old athlete's knees first rattled the bar, which remained locked in until his penis dragged it down.
Ogita's arms then followed the already crashing bar as his face became anguished, both from disappointment and, frankly, it was probably physically uncomfortable.
The good news is he can seek redemption in 2020 in front of his home country at the Tokyo Games. – Rappler.com
