On Saturday Japanese athlete Hiroki Ogita attempted to qualify for the Men's Pole Vault at Rio 2016, all because of his penis.
No this isn't a Daily Beast thing.

Pretty standard stuff, but let's take another look, back and to the left.
We can now identify the real culprit.
Using the latest slow motion technology we can see how his knee slightly grazes the bar, but then his penis (henceforth nicknamed 'Judas') got in the way, bringing Ogita tumbling down.
A man's dreams shattered by his manhood. Commentators are yet to suggest that if he had worn bigger shorts he might have kept himself contained and mastered the bar.
It was Graham Greene who said:
You cannot conceive, nor can I, of the appalling strangeness of the mercy of God.
We're sorry Ogita that you were punished for having the member God gave you.
