A weightlifter broke his leg while he attempted to squat 250kg during a competition in Russia.
During the Eurasian Weightlifting Championship, weightlifter Yaroslav Radashkevich broke his leg while trying to squat 250kg at the gym in Khabarovsk in the Russian Far East.
He held the weight for a very short period of time. Then his legs bent and he broke one of his legs.
He was rushed to a hospital and suffered a compound fracture to his right tibia.
Radashkevich, who was struggling to pay bills, said he will not be able to work as a personal trainer anymore.
He told Amur: “I was preparing for these competitions for a very long time and, in principle, I was sure that I would perform well.”
“It turns out that two weeks ago my leg began to hurt badly. I thought that it was just pulled, so I did not pay attention, I just had painkillers, trained, prepared. I was also advised it would pass by itself, heal.”
“The first two efforts the same weight, starting, I could not squat down. In the first and second attempts, I strained a bit, my knees inward, outward, shaken. And after that, the pain in the shins intensified.”
“Well, in the third attempt, the same weight – when I squatted something happened – you can see in the video.”
