Russian Pole Vaulter Takes A Tumble At World Championships

A bad day for a pole vaulter might be not quite making the height they'd hoped for… which makes this a very bad day for Dmitry Starodubtsev.

The Russian athlete was recently taking part in the World Championships in Daegu, South Korea, when his pole snapped in half.

He was attempting a height of 5.75 meters when the accident happened and it had looked good as he made his approach.

But after planting the pole and beginning on a upwards trajectory it snapped like a trig and he fell embarrassingly to the mat. But don't take our word for it, click play.
