These Olympic games have thrown up some amazing moments and some horrifying moments.

Bullets shot into the equestrian centre and cyclists suffering incredibly horrible crashes, it’s been a brutal Olympic Games for the unlucky few in Rio.

Unfortunately for Armenian weightlifter Andranik Karapetyan he can now add himself to that list.

Karapetyan was competing in the men’s 77kg weightlifting event and is the European champion, but could do nothing about what was about to befall him during his big Olympic moment.


Warning: Graphic content ahead as Karapetyan performed his second lift.

The 20-year-old screamed out in pain after the horror moment. Terrible. Get well soon, Karapetyan.
