WATCH: Japanese Pole Vaulter’s Olympic Hopes Ruined By His Own Bulge

Japanese Pole Vaulter's Bulge

28-year-old Japanese pole vaulter Hiroki Ogita had his Olympic dreams crushed last weekend after his penis caused him to foul during the all-important qualifying rounds in the men’s pole vaulting event at the Rio Olympics.

The bar was set at 5.3 metres, and despite it connecting with his legs it managed to hold… until the devastating moment it hit his bulge and began to fall.


Strangely hypnotic slow-motion video of poor Ogita’s attempt has been uploaded to YouTube, and it’s been watched more than 2.2 million times in two days.
