Video: Russian Pole Vaulter Crashes After Pole Breaks In Mid-Vault At World Championships

At the 2011 World Track and Field Championships in South Korea today, Russian Pole Vaulter Dmitry Starodubtsev was attempting a vault at just under 19 feet when his pole snapped mid-attempt.

Starodubstev was very lucky that he only injured his hand in the mishap, although it did cause him to withdraw from the competition.
