Star’s ski ‘jump’ goes spectacularly wrong

Japan's Daiki Ito is one of the top ski jumpers in the world but things did not quite go to plan at latest World Cup event in Sapporo.

Ito's has won four World Cup events in the past and looked to be in a good position to win a fifth in front of his home fans when he produce the second best jump in first round.

However, things went spectacularly wrong with his second effort as he lost balance plunging him dangerously down the hill.

Thankfully, Ito walked away from the incident unharmed allowing us to have a guilt-free laugh at his misfortune.
