Pole Vault Attempt Leads to Unexpected Snap

Occurred on May 6, 2021 / Potchefstroom, South Africa

Info from Licensor: "I do pole vaulting and attempted a personal best height at 5.62m. On my last attempt I took off and the pole gave in. The reason for this was that the pole could not carry the weight and broke. After the pole broke, I injured my left hand pretty bad and I had to stop competing."
