I wanted more than just the people visiting that thread to see this. It's very disappointing for the guy this happened to, made it all the way to the olympics for this. Hopefully he'll get better soon and continue to compete.

Kind of funny how the people came out and all lined up to block it from camera view though. Almost looked like a planned out TV show. But anyways, discuss your sympathy, disgust, etc... for the video.

Good lord. I cringed everytime they replayed it. That looks more painful than watching some guy getting kicked in the nuts for some reason.

God-damn. F*ck doing that.

Good work by the blocker guys though. They were straight there and doing their job. Saved the poor guy any further embarrassment.


I agree, as I said, it was slightly humourous having not expected them to come out in unison like that to block the view. But they were spot on, and he really doesn't need a ton of people seeing him like that.

I'll snap your arm at the elbow and see how your reaction is

Better yet, do it on a world stage like what has been done here. I'm sure you'd love it

^hey the whole point i love it so much is cause it didnt happen to me. life for you would be much funnier if you took that stance too.

Life is plenty funny for me, even I found some humour in this. But saying it's funny because it didn't happen to you is pretty silly.

"Ha! The Holocaust was ****ing HILARIOUS... Didn't happen to me "

You should get what I'm saying . Don't think I'm getting all pissy over this, I'm in an awesome mood, I'm just pointing out the flaws in said humour.

He dislocated his shoulder...it hurts.
I only have sympathy for the weights falling on him and the fact he was on a stage in front of the world.
#30
The blocks were kinda pointless though - as they replayed it about 5 times on the big screen above him. Woulda hurt a bit.... Poor dude.

Nah, watch again, it's at the elbow. You can tell from the bend, and how the arm flops when he's falling.

I thought it was his shoulder as well.
Maybe it was both, still not that sorry for him. He'll survive.

I read it was a dislocated elbow - though as a hinge joint I'm not really sure how you do that! Looks bloody painful though.

Maybe, who knows. But I do feel pretty sorry for him. Sure, it happens... And well yeah he'll survive. That's just a ****load of pain to go through, and the mental part of it is really the worst. Both the fact that he made it to the olympics, so much training and pressure, and that happens. And then the fact that he was on international television.

EDIT:

Yeahhh... I wasn't sure about that either. That's why I didn't put "dislocated" in the thread title, I figured SOMETHING must've snapped. Hence the title being "Weightlifter Snaps Arm". I really don't know though, I'm not a doctor (that line actually fits here ).

My bad, I'm just used to saying national television as opposed to internation, it's been fixed though

International TV, millions of people all over the world saw this guy! That's probably the most embarrassed you can get.

See, I think snatches look unstable hence why I dont do them.

This was good conformation for me
