It has been said the sometimes that sport is a game of inches and that was exactly the case for Japanese pole vaulter Hiroki Ogita.

Competing in the qualifying rounds of the men's pole vault at the Rio Olympic games, Ogita was attempting to clear a height of 5.3 metres but failed at his first attempt.

Ogita is unlikely to have complained about the size of his member before, but ultimately that's what cost him as the 28-year-old's penis hit the bar, causing it to fall and costing him a place in the final.

Despite clearing the height on his second attempt, the Japanese athlete was only able to make a height of 5.45 metres with his last jump, which left him in 21st place, ending his campaign in Rio.
