Pole Vaulter’s Olympic Dream Thwarted by His Own Penis

Hiroki Ogita‘s penis is too big for his own good.

The Japanese pole vaulter was in group A of the first round of the pole vault at the Olympics in Rio. He was attempting to clear a height of 5.3 meters (17.3 feet), when his shin hit the bar. Lucky for him, the bar shook quite a bit but remained in place.

Pow! Right in the penis

Unfortunately, the shaky bar was no match for Ogita’s penis. It hit the bar while he was on the way down, and as it started to fall his arm also made contact. Even though he cleared the height on his second attempt, he couldn’t get his score high enough to qualify for the finals, and he has only his penis to blame.
