OUCH! South Korean weightlifter's elbow snaps back while lifting 162kg - pics & video

Perhaps it was one of the most painful scenes to watch in the London Olympic games when South Korean Olympic weightlifter's elbow snapped back while he was attempting a 162kg lift in the men’s 77kg category. It was his second attempt at the snatch; he had successfully lifted 158kg in his first attempt.

'Sa encountered a problem halfway through the lift after he could not get out of the squatting position and his right arm buckled at the elbow.In video footage of the incident, Sa can be seen falling to the floor and screaming out in pain. The 27-year-old was wincing in pain before an official rushes to help him.' Then came the paramedics team to look after him before he was taken to hospital.
