The horrific moment Olympic weightlifter turns his elbow back to front



This is the moment Hungarian weightlifter Janos Baranyai's first Olympics ended in agony when he dislocated his right elbow in the ugliest moment yet of the Olympic weightlifting competition.

Baranyai was trying to snatch 148kg in his third lift in the men's 77kg division, when his elbow popped out of its socket.

No longer able to support the weight of the barbell, his right forearm bent backward. The 24-year-old Hungarian fell to the floor in shock, shaking and crying out in pain.

Hungary's coaching staff and competition officials rushed to Baranyai's aid as he lay trembling on the floor, his arm limp and twisted out of position.

I friend of mine was playin rugby and his team mate jumped to catch a high ball. Landed badly on hard ground and did similar to his knee, (knee cap & thigh bone protruding down into the front of his shin).

'Shotgunning', I believe is the technical term (on knees at least, like a pump action. Think about it...:|).

Everyone who witnessed either ran away screaming or spewed.
