Defending Olympic weightlifting champion Matthias Steiner was hit in the neck by the barbell Tuesday in the men’s super heavyweight competition.
Steiner lost his balance trying to lift 196 kilograms — about 432 pounds — in his second lift of the snatch portion of the competition. He fell awkwardly to the platform as the barbell crashed down on him. Medical personnel rushed up to tend to the German, who got up on his feet and waved to the crowd as he walked into the back room. He didn't come out for his third attempt and gave up subsequently.
