A woman’s weight lifter’s arm snapped at several points during a competition.
The French athlete, Gaelle Ketchanke, was attempting to lift around 110 kg during the European weightlifting championships in Batumi, Georgia, the Daily Mail reported.
According to the report, he tried to lift the same weight twice and failed every time. When he tried the elevator a third time, his arm broke.
The accident occurred on live television.
Ketchanke’s elbow bent unnaturally behind his body and his grip held him behind his body before he crushed her.
Swiss Post reported that he was screaming in pain after the injury. She was then rushed to hospital after leaving with a stretcher.
“Her cries of pain could be heard reverberating across the room as viewers clutched their faces in horror,” Yahoo wrote describing the atmosphere.

The report says he broke his arm in two places and sprained his elbow.
Previously, he won the silver medal at the championships in Romania. He also had the chance to take part in the Tokyo Summer Olympics in 2020.
He released a statement about his injury, Unilad reported.
“I am not getting out of these European championships in the best way, with a 107 kg elbow injury after winning the 103 kg bronze medal,” he said. “I have received many support messages that made me feel good and we are waiting for my return to France to do further tests.”
He added: “I want to thank the Federation’s medical and technical staff who responded very quickly and who are by my side. my coaches and colleagues from the French team. I will come back to you for news. “
The video showing his injury can be seen here (notice: graphic). The Epoch Times chose not to publish the video.
A dislocated elbow means that the bones of the forearm move out of place relative to the rest of the arm.
“The serious and specific injuries that can occur are fractures (rupture of the bones of the arm), injuries to the arteries of the arm (the vessels that carry blood to the hand) and injuries to the nerves that cross the elbow area, compromising movement and sensation arm and hand, “says WebMD of the injury.
Stop posting videos
Auburn gymnast Samantha Cerius pleaded with people to stop publishing and sharing the creepy video showing knees and legs bending unnaturally.
Last week, Cerio was forced to retire from the sport after the strange injury she suffered in a Louisiana competition.

“Those of you who post and tag me in the video of my injury, please ask me to stop,” he wrote on Twitter on April 10.
He added: “Going through the pain and seeing my knees bent unnaturally in real life has been pretty horrible, but continuing to see it from the videos / pictures because some people have the right to repost is not good. I have family, friends and teammates who don’t need to see me hurt over and over again. My pain is not your fun, “said Yahoo News.
Cerio therefore made his Twitter account private.
Senior Auburn Samantha Cerio said that the constant circulation of the clip is affecting her and those close to her.

His trainer, Jeff Graba, had previously confirmed that he had torn leg ligaments and sprained both knees. Previous reports said that both legs had broken.
“Sam’s intervention lasted two and a half hours and was an extreme success,” Graba wrote on Twitter. “We know that the road to full recovery will be long and difficult, but we are confident that it will be able to fully recover.”
According to WebMD, a sprained knee means that the bones around that joint have been pushed out of place with a lot of force.
“Sprained knees are rare, but they are serious. Other parts of the knee may also have been damaged simultaneously. You need to see a doctor immediately to get back on the road to recovery, “says the website.
They are usually the result of traffic accidents, violent falls and sports injuries, the site says, adding that it is quite painful.
