The painful accident of the British Olympic pole vaulter Harry Coppell reveals hazard even after a protected touchdown

It’s good that pole vaulters don’t need teeth to compete, because Harry Coppell just smashed a few at the Tokyo Olympics.

The British athlete posted a video of the accident on Instagram in which he landed safely while trying to train, but could not prevent the bar from hitting his mouth.

“I hope @ tokyo2020 has a good dentist nearby,” he wrote.

Harry, the 22nd pole vaulter in the world, finally saw a dentist.

The visit turned into a nightly ordeal, leaving him without a tooth and part of another – but with his humor intact.

“I will tell people that I was in a bar fight …” he wrote of his story with a photo of the results.
