Russian pole vaulter Dmitry Starodubtsev was trying to jump 5.75 meters this weekend at the IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea. Things went haywire when his pole snapped in mid-air. He goes tumbling to the mat, which looked kinda painful, but I guess is better than eating the bar. Still, kinda cool to watch in slow-mo.
