Hungarian weightlifter dislocates his elbow

Hungarian weightlifter Janos Baranyai dislocated his elbow while trying to snatch 148kg in the men’s 77kg Olympic competition.

“He injured his elbow, it’s a dislocation. He’ll be alright but it’s just an ugly thing,” said Sam Coffa, president of the jury at the competition and first vice-president of the international weightlifting federation.

Chinese Olympic volunteers were quick to try and cover the scene with Olympic boards, so his injury could not be seen by viewers.
