Going wrong: Baranyai loses control of the barbell twisting his left arm


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.


Impact: Baranyai's legs buckle as his arm bends around the barbell


Pain: Baranyai crumbles to the ground


Stricken: Baranyai grimaces on the platform after dislocating his right elbow


Help: the Hungarian is treated by doctors
