Another shocking moment for a player in London Olympic 2012.
Cuban athlete Lazaro Borges suffered a pole vaulter's worst nightmare as his pole snapped right in the middle of a leap in the qualifying round of the pole vault.
It was all happened in first attempt when 26-year-old had been attempting to clear a height of 5.35 metres but fell back onto the crash mat as he was half-way up his ascent, landing awkwardly on his neck as the splintered bar fell around him.
Though Borges would fail on his second attempt, he did clear the height on his third try.But he was failed in his bid to qualify for the final of the event on Friday.
He was luckily to land on the thick padded mat beneath the bar,with snapped pole which shattered into three pieces.
Fortunately, the only damage the 26-year-old suffered was to his ego and he can expect the incident to be replayed several more times during the London Games.
Lazaro Borges, who is one of the world's best at his sport, having finished second in the 2011 World Championships in South Korea.
