    No idea, I can't see anything but one blurry picture of the pole. Did it break into 3 pieces?

    It is a video. Maybe you do not have the right plug-in?

    The pole is shown breaking into three pieces, in slow motion, from several angles.

    It says I can't watch it because of the region I live in. Guess we can't watch it here in the U.S.

    Pole breaks - US version

    Sorry, that must be because it is on the BBC.

    It must be somewhere on the interweb you can see it. The competitor is Lazaro Borges, at the Olympic Games in London, 8 August 2012.

    Try these:

    It looks like it could be the same effect, but I'm not sure.
