VIDEO: Ski Jump Fail

Oh dear.

We're sure every ski jumper does the occasional bad jump, but it's a pretty sorry state of affairs when you don't even get to the jumpy bit at all.

But professional Japanese ski jumper Daiki Ito managed to do just that, as the two-time Winter Olympian and former World Cup runner-up lost balance and grip on the starting line in Sapporo, Japan and gently glided downwards whilst flapping like a puppy.

To be fair, at least he can take some comfort from the fact that he doesn't share a surname with the guy who was 2nd at the time.
