I’m guessing that when you’re clearing the bar on a pole vault, your goal is to make yourself as small and skinny as possible so as not to upset that delicate bar resting atop the rig.

Well, Hiroki Ogita had some well-laid plans to do just that, but it seems that his penis kept him from clearing the bar cleanly and completely.

From a glass-half-full approach, if something’s going to get you in trouble for being large and intrusive, I guess this would be the best-case scenario. But glass-half-empty?

He didn’t medal.
