The Olympic Event You Didn't See

weight11308getty_790135c.jpg

If you've been caught up in Olympic fever there's one scene you probably haven't seen on NBC's wall to wall coverage...

I can't show you video of Hungarian weightlifter Janos Baranyai blowing out his elbow during the Olympic weightlifting competition because it keeps getting removed from video sharing sites. The closest you can come to seeing is is a photo montage at The Telegraph. Digging into the photo gallery is not for the faint of heart, and without audio it's just not the same, but they're still very much "agony of defeat" photos.

Baranyai is, as much as once can be after dislocating their elbow, fine and will probably lift again after many months of rehab...

If it were me, I'd retire from the sport after an injury like that. If he rehabs and comes back to compete, he's got a lot more guts than I can possibly imagine.

Thank you for only posting one -- I'm not typically squeamish, but a single frame was enough for me to get the gist. Ow.

One thing that I can agree with Tom about.

Been there.
Seen that.
Reduced it.

You know, patients with these are really very grateful once it's back in place.
