Janos Baranyai was trying to snatch 148kg(326lbs.) in his third lift in the mens 77-kg division, when his elbow popped out of socket. No longer able to support the weight of the barbell, his right forearm bent backward. The 24-year-old Hungarian fell to the floor in shock, shaking and crying out in pain.
