Red Bull & Vodka doesn't give you Wings!

Popular energy drink Red Bull likes to sell itself in those tv adverts as giving you "wings", but it seems that doesn't hold true if you combine it with Vodka - a popular club mix.

Like many athletes, Russian high jumper Ivan Ukhov (one of the top jumpers in the world) had a drink of his favourite Red Bull, just before competing in the recent Lausanne Grand Prix event.

But being a patriotic Russian, Ukhov mixed the Red Bull with some good Russian vodka, which unfortunately hampered his high jumping efforts somewhat... rather than leaping over the high jump bar, Ukhov only managed a little jump underneath the bar, before stumbling back off the track...
