Hungarian weightlifter Janos Baranyai’s first Olympics ended in tears and pain when he dislocated his right elbow during the Olympic weightlifting competition.
Baranyai was attempting to lift 148kg in his third lift in the men’s 77-kg division. The 24-year-old Hungarian immediately fell to the floor screaming in tears and shaking from the pain.
Watch as Chinese Olympic staff, in seconds, rush to cover up the weightlifter with signs – they seemed to have already been prepared for an accident like this!
We wish Baranyai a full recovery, and at the age of 24, I doubt it will be the last time we see him in the Olympics.
