Olympic Weightlifter Suffers Truly Stomach-Turning Accident During Event

WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT

Olympic weightlifting is one of the most insane and intense sports an athlete can compete in. At the end of the day, you’re just seeing who can lift the heaviest amount of iron.

With that being said, Andranik Karapetyan, a 20-year-old champion weightlifter from Armenia, recently took the stage to put all of his years of training to the test.

Karapetyan was performing the clean and jerk move with 170 lbs when a horrifying incident occurred. At first it appeared as though Karapetyan was about to be triumphant:
