Men's Weightlifting: That's Gotta Hurt!

I've had similar accident before, although not while lifting weight. I was swinging from a bar and fell. The next thing I knew, my right arm were twisted exactly like that. I remembered that it was not so much of the pain but the shock to see what had happened.

Took me 2 weeks to recover.

The video has been taken down. But you can still view it here (at least currently):

How awful, I hope he recovers soon. But good that the volunteers reacted so professionally and immediately protected him from the view of the cameras and spectators.

I'm surprised that Baranyai is the only Hungarian weightlifter at the Olympics. Wasn't Hungary originally a big nation in weightlifting? Or is that reduction of the team due to the doping problem?
