Meme Origin: An Olympic pole vaulter bears a very unfortunate name.

It's hard enough to get respect when you are a pole vaulter. It's really the redheaded stepchild of Olympic sports; you begrudgingly accept its existence so that you can enjoy its more interesting siblings like the 100 meter dash. When your name doesn't even need to be altered for fans to completely belittle you, life gets that much tougher. It's no shock, then, that this guy couldn't get out of the qualifying round.
