Olympic Weightlifting Fail

I really don’t know how Matthias Steiner is alive.

The German weightlifter was attempting a 196 kg snatch lift (hee-hee) when the bar came crashing down onto his neck.

How awful is that groan sound he makes?  Sounded like a dying animal.  Although, my favorite part is when the three people are sent out on stage to hold an Olympic banner in front of the ailing Steiner…you know, just in case he died.
