Jap pole vaulter’s big pe­nis ru­ins his Olympic dream

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

OLYMPIC pole vaulter Hiroki Ogita’s dreams of glory at the Rio Games were shat­tered when he knocked off the bar… with his PE­NIS!

Ogita was at­tempt­ing to clear a height of 5.3m in the qual­i­fy­ing round when dis­as­ter struck.

The Ja­panese ath­lete’s shin grazed the bar first, caus­ing it to wob­ble.

His thigh just touched the bar as well, al­though it looked as though it would still stay in place.

But then his stick­ing-out cock de­liv­ered the fi­nal blow, knock­ing the bar to the ground in bizarrely heart­break­ing fashion.

As he dropped down to­wards the pit be­low, Ogita’s face con­torted with agony – both emo­tional and phys­i­cal – as he re­alised what a dick he’d made of him­self.

The 28-year-old later cleared the height – but fin­ished the com­pe­ti­tion a long way out of the medal hunt in 21st place.
