It ended up horribly wrong for the Russian Alexander Sedykh, when he in the past weekend having to defend his title at this year's edition of the World Raw Powerlifting Federation Open European Championships in Moscow. It recounts, among other things TMZ Sports and CBS Sports.
One of the tournament's many disciplines was the squat, and here came Sedykh the wrong place. The Russian managed to squatte 380 pounds without problems, but when he increased the weight to 400 pounds, it was more than the body could endure.
In footage from the 400 kilo-the experiment can be seen how Sedykhs leg wobbles, before he goes down in his knees, with a huge cabin and equally large smerteskrig to follow.
Alexander Sedykh sustained damage to both knees, as well as two overrevne thigh muscles at the failed squat attempts.
It was six hours of surgery to repair the damage, but it is nothing compared to the rehabilitation that lie ahead.
- The most important thing is now that I must lie quiet in bed for two months, " said Sedykh after the accident, according to TMZ Sports.
- It will take time to get over it. I've got my thigh muscles sewn together and the knees put back together.
How long it will take Alexander Sedykh to get over the injury, and whether he plans to continue with weight lifting at a high level, is not known.
