Vinko Bogataj

Vinko Bogataj was a ski jumping athlete from the former Yugoslavia who is now a coach (in Slovenia).

He is famous for his spectacular tumble during competition in 1970 which became immortalized in the title sequence of ABC's Wide World of Sports as the "Agony of Defeat".

Despite the image of his accident, he suffered only a mild concussion from it.
