Hiroki Ogita's Olympic dream over after bizarre mishap during pole vault

ATHLETICS-OLY-2016-RIO

Not many gents will be dreaming of a smaller penis, but that might be what is on Japanese pole-vaulter Hiroki Ogita's wishlist ahead of the next Olympic Games.

The 28-year-old was attempting to clear a 5.3-metre bar in the first round of Group A when his shin came into contact with it, causing it to shake vigorously, but it was the penis of Ogita that ruined his Olympic dream, which he has trained so hard for over the past four years.

After hitting the bar with his private parts, it was dislodged and Ogita's Olympic dream was all but over, barring a miracle, as he collected the falling bar in his arms disappointingly.

The Japanese managed to convince his penis to steer clear on his second attempt as he cleared the 5.3m mark, before he successfully jumped over the 5.45m mark on his third.

Unfortunately, it was too little, (or too big in this case) too late as Ogita ended up in 21st position and on the plane back to Japan.

Brazilian Thiago Braz da Silva could boast keeping his penis the calmest as he claimed gold on home soil, whilst Renaud Lavillenie of France took silver, and bronze went to USA's Sam Kendricks.

Away from the hilarity of the situation, da Silva explained his joy at winning the gold medal afterwards.
