Olympic weightlifter turns his elbow back to front (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1044258/Pictured-The-horrific-moment-Olympic-weightlifter-turns-elbow-front.html)
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.

I couldn't watch the video, especially after seeing the pictures. That's nasty.

This is not likely ever to be a problem for me.

Competitive weightlifting is bad for you.

But if you think this gives you slackers an out from the gym think again :D

Proper weightlifting is a good thing for a every adult. Just saying....;)
