- Japanese pole vaulter Hiroki Ogita is one of pole vaulters who competed in this year's Olympics at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- The 28-year-old became a viral sensation as his routine became an ordeal - his penis hit the bar before he crossed it properly
- He has a chance to redeem himself in the 2020 Tokyo Games
This Japanese pole vaulter was close to achieving the Olympic dream but fell short of the mark.
28-year-old Hiroki Ogita placed 21st in the preliminary round of the pole vaulting event after failing to clear the 5.45m bar. However, his performance went viral, featuring a clip of him passing through the bar with a little bit of difficulty.

Ogita's locked knees were the first to pass through the bar but were not able to glide him down smoothly.
Instead, it was his penis who finished off his routine.
In the clip that lasted only seven seconds, once his erect member hit the bar, one could see the anguish on his face. We do not know if it was from disappointment in losing or from the excruciating pain he felt when his pole hit another pole.
Netizens who saw the clip whipped out their best dick jokes and puns.
There were some who were confused on how did that happen since most still believe that Asian men, such as Ogita, have small penises. But really, do they?
Others thought that it was not his penis who helped him (or not) to get pass the bar, but other parts of his body or even his clothes.
Or maybe they're just fooling around and believe that it was his penis that did finish off his act all along.
Although what happened to Ogita might be painful, both physically and emotionally, he still has a chance to redeem himself at the 2020 Olympics which will be held in his home country.
What do you think is more embarrassing: not making it to the next round of your game or becoming a viral sensation for something that you cannot control?
