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).

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.
