It is a common lift that we see in most weight lifting competitions. The Snatch has become a lift in most people’s routine, CrossFit and weight lifting alike. It has become so popular that it has become one of the more popular weight lifting events in the Olympics.
Performed in most competitions, especially CrossFit competitions, it is common to see people fail performing any kind of lift. Failing is one thing. Dropping the bar on the back of your head as you fall face-first is another.
That is exactly what is happening in the video posted by NINEMSN. (The accident can be seen in the attached link). The lift starts well, but you begin to see her leaning forward. It all happens so quick that she is unable to do anything about it. Unfortunately, the video does not show that happens to the girl to let us know if she was alright or if she was seriously injured.
CrossFit is not your regular workout. It takes a different kind of strength and athleticism to do some of the exercises. We wish that everyone continues their training, but that they do with cautiousness no mater what exercises they are doing.
