Aleksey Dmitrik of Russia was high jumping on ice in the European Championships today.

The athlete, attempting to progress in the competition, seemed to not land his spikes in the correct position at precisely the wrong time.

Subsequently, his legs gave way underneath him and he crashed into the base of the jumping landing surface in hilarious fashion.
