Weightlifter Passes Out, Wins Silver Medal

Weightlifter Passes Out, Wins Silver Medal

 

Complex weightlifting moves are difficult enough, but they’re even harder when you’re unconscious.

In a scary scene at the Pan-Am Games over the weekend, Venezuelan weightlifter Genesis Rodriguez Gomez not only failed in her first clean and jerk attempt, but passed out.

Uninjured and unfazed, she nailed her subsequent attempts of 106 and 109 kilos, good enough for a silver medal.

Maybe this will keep people from rushing to try Crossfit.
