    This just happened not to long ago. A Hungarian lifter was going for 158kg in clean and snatch and his elbow popped http://beltwayblips.com/video/olympic_weightlifter_turns_elbow_back_to_front/

    He had fairly good form on his earlier lifts so I think this was just one of those accidents that statistics tells us it will occur. When you think about how much weight these guys are lifting its crazy.

    You have to love the commentators they keep saying how this should not be shown on the replay but it keeps on replaying from all the different angles.
