In the video below, Ivan Ukhov, a Russian high jumper, took a more literal meaning to the high jump when he alleged competed while drunk on vodka and Red Bull. Ukkov is shown ultimately missing the jump and then passing out under the bar. He apparently had more skill in finding a different bar before the competition. However, the incident will undermine Red Bulls’ slogan: “It Gives You Wings.”
The event at Athletissima meet last week had led officials to investigate Ukhov conduct. Ukhov could not complete a single jump and is shown in the video pushing away an official who tries to intervene. No doubt vodka and Red Bull will now be called a High Bar.

Thanks to IL for the slogan grab!
