South Korea's Jaehyouk Sa suffered an injury that was horrific, heartbreaking and, as it were, elbow dislocating. The weightlifter initially accomplished a snatch lift of 158 kg (348.33 lbs). The defending gold medalist from the Beijing Games was attempting to lift 162 kg (357.15 lbs) before suffering his injury. Sa was able to get himself just under the bar before his right arm hit a point of no return. His elbow couldn't take the added pressure, and he went down in a heap. That's when the heart breaks for a former champion who knows his chances for a medal are gone at the London Games.
