Olympic Weightlifter Suffers Gruesome Elbow Injury


Rio De Janeiro: The Rio Olympics have not been for the faint of heart or the squeamish of stomachs.

French gymnast Samir Aït Saïd broke his left leg in competition earlier in the week and, on Wednesday, Armenian weightlifter Andranik Karapetyan appeared to have dislocated his elbow while competing in the 77kg competition. He was in second place when, as he hoisted the weights over his head in a 195 kg clean and jerk, they carried his left arm backward gruesomely.
