Andranik Karapetyan is the reigning European champion in 77 kilogram weightlifting, but his hopes for an Olympic medal ended when he suffered a disgusting elbow dislocation while trying to lift 195 kilograms (430 pounds).

As a warning, the below video is rather graphic, and features a ton of screaming.

Karapetyan’s coach couldn’t even look at his elbow, which is certainly not where it’s supposed to be in the second photo here.
