Olympic: Matthias Steiner' drops weight on head

Weightlifter Matthias Steiner Drops 432 Pounds On the Back of His Head.

German weightlifter Matthias Steiner claimed gold in Beijing, but faltered today in the most painful manner while attempting to snatch 196 kilograms, just over 432 pounds.

While Steiner's cleared 200kg in the snatch easily before, he was unable to clear the weight today-leading to a moment so scary match officials brought out the modesty tarp to cover his injury.
