Weightlifter Blacks Out During Lift

Tor-Martin Trongmo Tangen was attempting a PB in the clean and jerk lift when he forgot the golden rule: breathe. As Tangen finished the lift, his brain lacked the oxygen to keep conscious, so he collapsed to the ground with the weights on top of him. Tangen said he couldn’t remember falling: “Suddenly there were numerous people standing around me. I quickly came to myself, but didn’t realize what had happened before I actually stood up.” Credit: YouTube/On Hands Channel
