Japanese pole vaulter Hiroki Ogita literally cock blocked from Olympic dream

Hiroki Ogita was competing in the first round of men’s pole vault qualifying round when it seems his penis got in the way and knocked down the bar when he was attempting to clear. He later said it was actually his leg that touched the bar, but the Internet is sticking to the penis story.

NSFW    RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL — A Japanese pole vaulter at the Rio Olympics made international headlines recently. Not because of his skills of jumping over the bar, but, by the way he knocked the bar down.

Hiroki Ogita was competing in the first round of men’s pole vault qualifying round last Saturday, when something unusual happened as he was trying to clear a vault of 5.3 meters. Video footage apparently shows his penis getting in the way and touching the bar before before it is knocked down, disqualifying him.

Although Ogita later expressed his bafflement at how the press covered the incident, stressing that it was his leg that knocked down the bar and not his manhood, the Internet seems to prefer going with the penis story.

It’s probably the best way to lose at the Olympics anyway. As Twitter user Dan J says, “Ogita just gave all Japanese men a reason to hold their head high.”
