BEIJING, Aug 13 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - Hungarian weightlifter Janos Baranyai dislocated his elbow while trying to snatch 148kg in the men's 77kg Olympic competition on Wednesday, a sports official said.

"He injured his elbow, it's a dislocation. He'll be alright but it's just an ugly thing," said Sam Coffa, president of the jury at the competition and first vice-president of the international weightlifting federation.

Several lifters have injured themselves over the past couple of days as the competition moves towards the higher weight classes, where athletes try to hoist up barbells weighing as much as 187kg in the clean and jerk.
