In a focus on sports, a pole vaulter snags his bulge causing loss! Japanese pole vaulter Hiroki Ogita’s attempt to clear a height of 5.3 meters (17.3 feet) in group A of Monday night’s competition was foiled by an unlikely object: his junk.
Watch it HERE.
As you can see in the GIF above, Ogita’s legs come into contact with the bar first, but it was his dick that really pulled it down. While he managed to keep his junk in check and clear the height on his second attempt, he couldn’t top 5.45 meters (17.8 feet) on his last jump, which put him in 21st place and out of the Olympics.
Ogita may have missed out on a gold medal, but he joins an illustrious group of Olympians who gained fame thanks to their unfortunately positioned dongs.
Hiroki Ogita, wasborn 30 December 1987) is a Japanese athlete who specialises in the pole vault. He competed in the pole vault event at the 2015 World Championships in Athletics in Beijing, China. He finished 21st in the pole vault event at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The pole vault at the Summer Olympics is grouped among the four track and field jumping events held at the multi-sport event. The men’s pole vault has been present on the Olympic athletics program since the first Summer Olympics in 1896. The women’s event is one of the latest additions to the program, first being contested at the 2000 Summer Olympics – along with the addition of the hammer throw, this brought the women’s field event program to parity with the men’s.
In the future, athletes need to figure their undergarment situation to avoid pole vaulter snags his bulge causing loss.
