A pole vault athlete had to settle for 21st place after his manly bits interfered with his Olympic campaign.

As Hiroki Ogita approached the pole, it seemed he would make it over, clearing a height of 5,3 metres. Instead, his body parts got in the way, beginning with his leg, then arm, and finally his own “pole” bringing the bar down.

He had to settle for 21st place as his Olympic aspirations came to an abrupt end.
