Reportedly, the man named Alexander was seriously injured but did not die:

A statement said: “A 28-year-old patient was diagnosed with fractures of the ribs and scapula.

"He underwent a brain scan. So far everything is in order but injuries of this kind can show up within a day or two.

"He is under strict surveillance. His condition is assessed as heavy."

Further info:

  • The man fell 7 meters / 23 feet

  • It happened in Anzhero-Sudhen, which is rougly 300km from Novisibirsk (similar longitude to Nepal).

  • Before Alexander took to the pole, an announcer told the crowd he was “almost an Olympic champion” in climbing. :marseydicklet:

About the event:

  • Pole climbing is one of a number of Russian traditions in the the Maslenitsa festivities which mark the beginning of the end of the long cold winter.

  • The ritual symbolises touching the sun which will soon bring spring and summer warmth, and marked the week before Lent in the Orthodox calendar.

  • They eat pancakes, and there can be fist and snowball fights along with sleigh rides.

There is an ambulance on site and police (or military, I don't know), so there is some degree of preparation for this shit.... I mean, nobody thought of putting mats or an old mattress at least?

It was a slow weekend in town, apparently. But let's be honest - people go hoping they'll see something like this - similar to 'race fans' who secretly hope to see some spectacular crash while watching the cars roar past.

Looks like he caught his thigh, maybe because of sweat, or a knot on the trunk.

Damn, at the very least they should put SOME padding under the pole. Like that is the literal first thing you do if you have a competition where someone climbs a huge pole. Duh.

They probably justify it as maintaining the traditional way it has been done since Ivan the Terrible or something.
