    As in maybe less than the number of digits on one hand in 5+ years.
    You're lucky. I'm just starting out and have had many such fails. But I start laughing as soon as I get my composure back and have never given up. I know that this has happened to all who have tried to rise (pun intended.)

    The video might have been more interesting if the blocks weren't there, but I'm glad they were.

    Anyone else escaped an injury / got an injury because of a similar fail?


    I've literally been lifting 5-6 days a week since 2005 and never once have failed a snatch like this. I still don't understand how this happens...

    Personally never have had an issue just hopping forward and dumping the bar behind me or pushing away from the bar and dumping forward. That said I've scraped my forehead on the way up in the power snatch a couple of times...

    I too have had a couple of such fails, and you're right, everyone has failed at some point or other. Those who don't give up, succeed.

    This happens to all weightlifters, eventually. I don't know of anyone who hasn't had an ugly missed snatch at some point. You can feel good and strong and stable, then your elbow flexes 1mm, and it's snap city. I've had it happen once when I was really tired and tried forcing a max effort, which taught me the valuable lesson about knowing my limits. Then I had it happen when I was refreshed and felt strong, which taught me the valuable lesson that........ uhm, anything can happen....... I guess, maybe. Or maybe the lesson was that I suck at weightlifting and should quit. If that was the lesson, I was too dumb to learn it. Which seems to fit, so ya, that was most likely the lesson.

    Cleaned 87kg for the first time October 2011. I passed out at the top, fell over backwards, cracked my head open on some 50kg steel plates stacked up behind me. 7 stitches, lucky to not have anything lasting.

    It happens, even to the best:




    With that said, OP, you could see that coming a mile away. It looks like it was the result of what I call "huck it and f*** it". You have absolutely no rigidity in your body during that lift, and it's mostly a product of your "touch and go" approach to that hang position.

    IMO, kinda weird IWF would post this on their IG page.
    Seems to service no purpose other to shame the lifter.

    Unless this is some weird way of marketing to the I-Watch-NASCAR-For-the-Wrecks type of people of something.

    EDIT: well, at least show the video his silver medal jerk in the same post then....
