Powerlifter Martin Nguyen was trying to break his 172.5kg personal best in the front squat and raise it to 180kg when things went dramatically wrong. Nguyen started to feel faint, and as the front squat does not allow for a spotter, there was nobody to catch the weights when his knees buckled. Although the fall was painful, with 180kg landing right on top of his midsection, Nguyen was not injured seriously. Credit: PTCFrankston.
