The Olympic Event You Didn’t See


If you’ve been caught up in Olympic fever there’s one scene you probably haven’t seen on NBC’s wall to wall coverage…

I can’t show you video of Hungarian weightlifter Janos Baranyai blowing out his elbow during the Olympic weightlifting competition because it keeps getting removed from video sharing sites. The closest you can come to seeing is is a photo montage at The Telegraph. Digging into the photo gallery is not for the faint of heart, and without audio it’s just not the same, but they’re still very much “agony of defeat” photos.

Baranyai is, as much as once can be after dislocating their elbow, fine and will probably lift again after many months of rehab…
