German Weightlifter Matthias Steiner Drops 432 Pounds on His Head
Matthias Steiner, the defending Gold Medalist in Men’s Weightlifting, failed to finish today’s competition after dropping 432 pounds on his head during his ‘snatch’ lift…huhuhuh…snaaatch.
Luckily, Steiner was able to stand up and walk off on his own power and returned to make another attempt at the lift, upping the weight a couple pounds even. He was unable to complete that lift either. Shocker…but props to zee German for coming back out and giving it another go.
