The Olympic games always throw up incredible moments: amazing victories, heartbreaking losses, inspirational performances… and sometimes even absolutely horrifying spectacles.
Unfortuantely for Armenian weightlifter Andranik Karapetyan, his Olympics are over. Karapetyan, the European weightlifting champion, was competing in the men’s 77kg weightlifting event when his left arm gave way, bent in a seemingly impossible way and snapped clean in half.

The 20-year-old champion screamed out in immense pain moments after the brutal snap. We wish him all the best in his recovery.
