Russian high jumper Ivan Ukhov was sweating bullets.

Just before his 2.33 meter attempt, he took off his competition jersey. And then lost it. He frantically searched for his jersey before an official pointed out the t-shirt nearby. Donning his temporary uniform, Ukhov sailed over the bar, and then returned to search for the jersey.

Ukhov found it before the end of the competition, and then won the gold anyways.
