    Just saw the video of olympic weightlifter turning elbow -- back to front, the video is very painful to watch. I got light headed watching it.

    Man, they were Johnny-on-the-spot with those people coming out to hide the carnage. I reckon these sorts of things happen pretty often for them to have been that prepared.

    Hope he gets a full recovery for motion at least.

    I haven't seen the video, and not sure I can bring myself to. I saw three still images of the accident and read the news reports, and they were enough to make me shudder. I'm not prone to nightmares, but I hope I don't find myself dreaming of this tonight. And I go to the gym later, UGH. I may have to steer clear of anyone using barbells today.

    Good Lord, that poor guy must be in unbelievable pain. It was painful enough just to watch it. And he got clipped on the back also. I hope he will be OK, but that could be the end of his lifting career.

    OMG!!! I know it wasn't funny, but I laughed a little when the folks came out with the boards to block the views. No emotion at all!!! I would have been screaming like a little bitch!!!! icon_eek.gif

    He did have a nice butt though!! I hope that wasn't his GOOD ARM!!!!

    This used to be my sport. All I can say is that I pray for this young man who has had not only his dreams but his sport crushed. G-d bless and protect him.
