Russian powerlifter fractures both his knees by failing to squat 400kg

Alexander Sedykh was competing in the World Raw Powerlifting Federation (WRPF) European Championships near Moscow, when the clusterfock incident happened.
The defending champion can be seen bending under the bar to hold the enormous weight on his shoulders. He is visibly shaking while holding the sheer mass for a few moments before attempting the strenuous squat.
Medics rushed to the power lifter's aid and he was rushed to hospital for immediate surgery, which lasted six hours.
Both knees were fractured, according to reports, adding that his quadricep muscles had to be reattached.
In an interview, the Russian lifter said the disastrous lift means he will have to learn to walk again.
Last year, a similar injury beset a weightlifter as he tried to squat a lesser 250kg (550lb) during a competition in Russia.

Yaroslav Radashkevich was at the Eurasian Weightlifting Championship when he buckled under the colossal weight at the gym in Khabarovsk in the Russian Far East
He suffered a compound fracture to his right tibia
