Hungarian's Olympic bid ends in agony

Hunky Hungarian weightlifter Janos Baranyai's first Olympic bid ended in agony when his elbow buckled and popped out of socket. The 24-year-old's right forearm bent backward and he fell to the floor shrieking in pain.

What was nearly as disturbing as watching the injury unfold on YouTube was the way Olympic staffers surrounded the crippled wrestler with shields to block any further view as medical personnel rushed to his side. The quickness and efficiency of the whole affair was eerie. Watch the video after the jump.
